  3. That's a beautiful image! Somehow, I think it would make a really neat tattoo, maybe because it's so very contrasty.

  9. Lovely image. I like many of the artists associated with William Morris and the Arts and Crafts Movement, do you know Walter Crane's painting 'The Horses of Neptune? I think that is just wonderful.

  10. Rowan - I love the image you mention and it reminds me so much of the scene in LOTR when Arwen is taking a wounded Frodo to her father.
