Sculptress by AncaXBre Sculptress by AncaXBre
Nerdanel hard at work on a statue of Yavanna. 
Yavanna is based on this passage:
Some there are who have seen her standing like a tree under heaven, crowned with the Sun; and from all its branches there spilled a golden dew upon the barren earth, and it grew green with corn; but the roots of the tree were in the waters of Ulmo, and the winds of Manwë spoke in its leaves. Kementári, Queen of the Earth, she is surnamed in the Eldarin tongue.
You can't tell me Nerdanel wouldn't want to sculpt that.

I'll add my praise to the chorus of voices! A really beautiful and almost rarefied glimpse at a scene that nobody has thought of before! Stunning :clap:

This is amazing, I'm so glad I found it.
I love that description of Yavanna, and I absolutely agree that Nerdanel would want to want to immortalise that sight! I'm in awe of where you took the idea - the composition on this is wonderful, and all the details you put into the workshop make this scene completely convincing. The pulley, the ladder, the waterbucket, the cabinet of tools in the background... it really looks like a working studio. Awesome work!

Someone had to figure out how to present another aspect of Middle Earth, the artistic life. Well done. :)
