The great hall [In reply to] Can't Post

with its carved figures and black and white color scheme makes me think of a game of chess. I suspect Denethor is a chess master who sits back and moves pieces as he will, thinking only of the game, not of the pieces (except for Boromir). I don't think he makes allowance for the personal nature of the ones involved in conflict; he only looks at his maps, sees that his position has no hope from a practical point of view, and concludes that Sauron has him checkmated. Soon he will resign, knocking down his chess king, which he sees as himself.

They that go down to the sea in ships, that do business in great waters; These see the works of the Lord, and His wonders in the deep.
