Twilight of the Gods by Mitchellnolte Twilight of the Gods by Mitchellnolte
Image i made, which kind of just kept growing, based on the Goetterdaemmerung - the lat part of the Nibelungen, when Valhalla burns and the Rhine overflows

Bruennhilde singt:

Fliegt heim, ihr Raben!
Raunt es eurem Herren,
was hier am Rhein ihr gehört!
An Brünnhildes Felsen fahrt vorbei.
Der dort noch lodert,
weiset Loge nach Walhall!
Denn der Götter Ende dämmert nun auf.
So – werf' ich den Brand
in Walhalls prangende Burg.

Wonderful painting! By any chance, are you familiar with the Blind Guardian song of the same name?

no i am not familiar with that, though i do enjoy Blind Guardian - i have listened to a few of their Tolkien themed songs, i like their choice of subject matter. I think though also in doing this work not only Wagners music came to mind but also that of Bathory

I've just made certain to favorite this one! And I must say it is quite the glorious, spectacular image... majestic, beautiful, and apocalyptic all at the same time. Quite a worthy adaptation of the Gotterdammerung indeed! :)

Nice, but you know this is the origin of the term, "its not over until the fat lady sings"

Because only a hefty woman can play the part.

certainly that would make sense if only a fat lady could play the part - i did look at a span of Brunnhilde figures, i didnt see a large opera singer but i guess i had the vision in my head of the woman depicted
