Boromir Fallen


“Boromir Fallen”
Oil on canvas, 13″x21″ wide.

Artist Commentary: Saturday at dawn I hiked the western shores of Nen Hithoel, wending my way southward toward the triple peaks that crown the falls of Rauros. Upon the green sward of Parth Galen, I paused to admire Tol Brandir’s hewn heights, when suddenly a huntsman’s horn sounded from the forest behind me. Urgent came that call, and I dropped my gear and sprang up the sylvan slopes of Amon Hen to render what aid I might.

The winding of the horn ceased, but I ran on, coming at last upon a glade littered with the lifeless bodies of orcs. But propped against a tree, on the edge of the clearing, I descried the huntsman, motionless, seated on the ground with broken sword still clasped in his mighty hand. He was pierced with many arrows, and beside him knelt a cloaked companion. I stood in silence before these two great men: the one having been released from all suffering; the other with head bowed in sorrow and hands clasped before him in the still, golden light of morning.

Artist Commentary: The hill (which means “Hill of the Eye” in Sindarin) is located at the western banks of the river Anduin, above the Falls of Rauros.

It was also used as the cover image for Silver Leaves‘ inaugural issue in September, 2007. Silver Leaves is the journal of the The White Tree Fund.
