Isildur | Art Print
This is The Saxon Storyteller's take on one of the most important events of Tolkien's second age. Following his fathers death, Isildur (the new King of Gondor) cuts the one ring from the hand of Sauron, releasing it from its place of power and setting into motion the events of the Lord of the Rings series.
Norse mythology was clearly a huge influence on the world that J.R.R. Tolkien created for his Lord of the Rings series. From the inclusion (and characteristics) of some of the races like the elves and dwarves to the names of many of his characters, the author was clearly inspired as many of our artists are today by the tales passed down from the Viking age.
Available as a standalone print or as part of Matt's Lord Of The Rings Print Series.
Material & Make
The artwork you will receive has been printed locally using high quality inks and paper to maintain integrity and quality of colour and image.
Your print will arrive on 250gsm uncoated art board and should be handled with care. It’s preferable to only touch the edges and we recommend mounting these in a frame behind glass.
About The Artist
The Saxon Storyteller is an illustrator known for his incredible ability to capture the character and theme of artifacts and historical figures. Reminiscent of Saxon and Viking iconography, his subject matter ranges from members of the lore (such as Ragnar Lothbrok) to those of Tolkien (like Gandalf and other members of the Fellowship). You may also recognize his work as the key illustrator of the Nordic Mythology Podcast, where his images appear unique to each episode and its content.
On Northern Fire, you can find the artwork of Saxon Storyteller on clothing, prints, and pins.
