"Then Eöl looked into the eyes of King Turgon, and he was not daunted, but stood long without word or
movement while a still silence fell upon the hall; and Aredhel was afraid, knowing that he was perilous. Suddenly, swift
as serpent, he seized a javelin that he held hid beneath his cloak and cast it at Maeglin, crying:
'The second choice I take and for my son also! You shall not hold what is mine!'
But Aredhel sprang before the dart, and it smote her in the shoulder; and Eöl was overborne by many and set in
bonds, and led away, while others tended Aredhel. But Maeglin looking upon his father was silent.
It was appointed that Eöl should be brought on the next day to the King's judgement; and Aredhel and Idril
moved Turgon to mercy. But in the evening Aredhel sickened, though the wound had seemed little, and she fell into the
darkness, and in the night she died; for the point of the Javelin was poisoned, though none knew it until too late.
Therefore when Eöl was brought before Turgon he found no mercy; and they led him forth to the Caragdûr, a
precipice of black rock upon the north side of the hill of Gondolin, there to cast him down from the sheer walls of the
city. And Maeglin stood by and said nothing; but at the last Eöl cried out: 'So you forsake your father and his kin, illgotten
son! Here shall you fail of all your hopes, and here may you yet die the same death as I."
Every charcaters and the story are by J.R.R. Tolkien The Silmarillion
Right now I'm reading the Tolkien letters, and he said that he pictured the Numenorians as looking more like Egyptians in terms of how they dress. I was a bit surprised by that, but it's one more thing the movies got wrong.
Yea I have also seen his stuff. His designs are interesting, and definitely a reasonable extrapolation. I think if you don't read Tolkien's letters it will never occur to you that he had an Egyptian design in mind for them. Seems weird to me too since Egypt was never part of western civilization, but on the other hand it makes since because Numenor was in an area near the tropics.
Anyway, that's a somewhat grim but good illustration. A good illustration of a grim scene, maybe?
Much was written already by others, but I really like the landscape in the BG and that moth-wing style on Eol's gown. And the braided structure of the hair. And the details on the armours, that are hardly visible at this resolution.
