Pipe Gallerie l'Arte du'Tolkien

I'm sure there are many lovers of great art among you fellow Barrow-Downers.
Well, you have come to the right place, for here is the first ever definitive collection of the Great Painters' interpretations of Tolkien's work.

Enter the Gallerie l'Arte du'Tolkien

LePetitChoux, that's brilliant! [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img] I found myself laughing out loud many different times. The strange thing is, alot of it made sense, and I could see Tolkien's works in the paintings, either explicitly or abstractly. Thanks!
Peace

That was great! I wish they had spelled "Cirith Ungol" correctly, but that's just picky little me. Everyone check out the site! It's really worth it!

*chokes and sputters* That was brilliant! I believe I've seen it before, but it was a while ago, and I thought this was really funny. I especially liked the picture of Gandalf, Denethor, and Pippin... [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

Actually, there's more. No art, but more to that page. It's bigger and better than you thought! (Take the Middle-Earth test- I dare ya!) Here you go... Tolkien Sarcasm Page

That is so funny! Yes'm, I too am very nitpickie about spellings and such but it was still awesome! My fave was the one about Aragorn in his youth. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

Be fore-warned: The 'Tolkien Sarcasm' page is not for those who cannot take a break and see the lighter side of Tolkien's works.
I, for one, thought it was superb! Thanks for the link! [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]
Peace
