'Thus Maedhros and Maglor gained not the jewel; but it was not lost. For Ulmo bore up Elwing out of the waves, and he gave her the likeness of a great white bird, and upon her breast there shone as a star the Silmaril, as she flew over the water to seek Eärendil her beloved.'
JRR Tolkien: The Silmarillion
: Chapter 24: Of the Voyage of Eärendil and the War of Wrath
Painted in watercolour, with a touch of white gouache.
