Yes incredible, beyond description almost. And oh the emotion, after all the hardships, grief, numbness of mind and body, the hopeless feelings, deprivation and cold almost unto death. And when all hope seemed over, a light that grew greater until...................that moment. But honestly I would hope it would be tackled by someone with great visual integrity that ALSO had read Tolkien since a lad or lass and truly had the right heart and mind and integrity to do it. And what a triumph that would be...sigh.
Yes Odette, very difficult indeed... Another would be Yavanna standing on a hill with her arms upheld greeting the rain of Ulmo in the wind of Manwe, with the stars of Varda shining through. There is a wonderful small section in the Sil where we witness some personal info regarding the relationship between Aule and Yavanna. Its amazing because we witness a kind of gentle argument between Valar lovers. Its the section where Yavanna realizes that most of her works will be used and abused by the children of Eru. Its my favorite section of the Sil. Yavanna basically has a go at Aule, who retorts back, its funny and heart warming.
The outcome, the creation of the Shepherds of the forests.
Oh yes I recall that.It was really domestic and sweet.She goes on and on about how Aule's creations will come and destroy her trees and they won't be able to protest..I think that's how it went.She mentioned something about the water too.Gosh I need to buy that book.
Brego, that would be wondrous indeed. But for me, the Valar are so above everything on Middle-Earth , that I honestly would be disappointed to see a mortal play any of the parts. No, I who am usually not that enamoured with a lot of smoke and mirrors throught technology would indeed favour such a thing, totally ethereal and other worldly and the characters digital only, but the best that can be done, the very very best,
