Gandalf & The Balrog | Art Print
This piece features one of the most iconic scenes (and perhaps the most famous line) from the Lord of the Rings films: "You shall not pass!"
This is The Saxon Storyteller's depiction of the fall of the grey wizard in the mines of Moria at the hands of an ancient Balrog of Morgoth...
Norse mythology was an undeniable 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 the clarity of colour and image intended by the artist.
Your piece will arrive on 250gsm uncoated art board and should be handled with care (we suggest only touching the edges of your print). For longevity, it is recommended to mount 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 will discover the artwork of Saxon Storyteller on clothing, prints, and pins.
