“Cousins”

This is one of my favorite renditions of Maedhros and Fingon by Ivanneth. Go check out her great gallery of art!

The caption she includes with this piece is as follows:

“Long before, in the bliss of Valinor, before Melkor was unchained, or lies came between them, Fingon had been close in friendship with Maedhros; and though he knew not yet that Maedhros had not forgotten him at the burning of the ships, the thought of their ancient friendship stung his heart.”  The Silmarillion, Of the Return of the Noldor

Maedhros and Fingon

Nice! I’ve always wondered about Maedhros and Maglor because they were the most behaved of the seven, and oh so conflicted.
