Smaug stained glass panel Can't Post

Here's a photo of a stained glass panel I created of Smaug, based upon the Brothers Hildebrandt image from the 1970's.

'I cannot read the furry letters,' said Frodo in a quavering voice.
'No,' said Gandalf, 'but I can.'

'One Ring to drool on them all, One Ring to heed them
One Ring to bring them all and remind them all to feed them
In the land of Kitchen where the litter lies.

The stained glass work is [In reply to] Can't Post

really well done, I like the guitar too. I also looked at the New Zealand photo's, they are so beautiful. I really want to win the lottery so I can visit there someday. I will never leave if I ever get there.


The repetition, the doubling and the long strands of interconnected narrative all mean something. They say that life is a series of cycles, and that we will likely meet the same kinds of archetypal guardians, opponents and allies at various stages along the way. But the nature of the conflicts changes as you age and grow over the span of an epic. Reading 'The Lord of the Rings' in my 20s, I was inspired by its idealism, but also terrified by its vision of middle life and old age as a patient, plodding struggle against the mundane grinding of evil. Seeing the movie meant something else to me from my current perspective, around the corner of age fifty, reminding me that the raw intensity of youthful dreams still has purity and power. At the same time, I felt the death of comrades in the movie keenly, for comrades have started to fall around me, and I looked to the story for the courage to continue the struggle without them.~As the legend says, 'One Ring to rule them all and in the darkness bind them.' We were certainly bound in the darkness, me and that afternoon's audience for the first chapter of 'The Lord of the Rings,' fellow travelers on a long journey together, seeking meaning for our shadowed world in the mirror of a myth, just as humans have always done.~Christopher Vogler

Looks based on a Hildebrandt print [In reply to] Can't Post

although the glasswork is nice. Stained glass is a wonderful medium, especially when back-lit.Smile

It's *identical* to [In reply to] Can't Post

the Hildebrandt Bros' painting, or as identical as one can get in stained glass. Which, considering it's marked as sold, is a little hinky.

'I cannot read the furry letters,' said Frodo in a quavering voice.
'No,' said Gandalf, 'but I can.'

'One Ring to drool on them all, One Ring to heed them
One Ring to bring them all and remind them all to feed them
In the land of Kitchen where the litter lies.
