LOTR Caption Contest CLXXIII (Christmas Edition) Can't Post

Thank you to Belegir for choosing me to post the 173rd entry in the the Lord of the Rings Caption Contest! In the spirit of the season I'm going to be a llittle different. What do you make of the figure below and his place in Middle-earth, and how would you caption the image?

I'll admit that Narnia was tickling the back of my mind. If I remember correctly then either the figure or the sleigh was originally accompanied by a hound, but I can't find an image that confirms my recollection. Both were released separately for the Noble Collection around the year 2000.

And Rose drew him in, and set him on the harpsichord bench, and put little Wilhelm Friedemann upon his lap.

He began composing a fugue. 'Well, I'm Bach,' he said.

The Red Wizard Formenstámo (North-helper) was tasked to inspire the Polar Bears in rebellion against the Goblins of the North. / [In reply to] Can't Post

 

******************************************
The audacious proposal stirred his heart. And the stirring became a song, and it mingled with the songs of Gil-galad and Celebrian, and with those of Feanor and Fingon. The song-weaving created a larger song, and then another, until suddenly it was as if a long forgotten memory woke and for one breathtaking moment the Music of the Ainur revealed itself in all glory. He opened his lips to sing and share this song. Then he realized that the others would not understand. Not even Mithrandir given his current state of mind. So he smiled and simply said "A diversion.”
