my arts: Varda and the Play of the Stars

Here she is. Varda, Lady of the Stars.

If you’re familiar with Tolkien’s vast mythology, you already know her. Varda or Elbereth or Tintallë (the Kindler) is a Vala – a power in Middle-earth – associated with light. It was Varda who set the stars in the skies. This image depicts her watching her creations unfold in the heavens as they wheel and dance for her.
