Queen Indis by shyangell Queen Indis by shyangell
I finally finished with Queen Indis. :)

People: Vanyar
Father: possibly King Ingwë's father
Mother: Unknown
Husband: King Finwë of the Noldor
Children: Findis, Nolofinwë (Fingolfin), Lalwën, Arafinwë (Finarfin)

Indis is pillar in the tragic history of the Noldor, if not the trigger. After Míriel's passing, Finwë asked the Valar to be wed again to Indis, close kin of King Ingwë, but the terrible price was that Míriel would never walk in the world of the living again. Fëanor, thus hated her and disliked her children. When Finwë died at the hands of Morgoth, she exiled herself with her eldest daughter to the Vanyarin settlements at the foot of the Taniquetil where she had been born. Her golden hair, a vanyarin trait, was passed down to the most famous of her granddaughters, Lady Galadriel.

Wow, you have the art nouveau version of the Pre-Raphaelites down very nicely! It's not quite mandatory for Middle-Earth, but it seems very natural. :D  Indis doesn't get any fan love, even though she got Finwe to live again and provided the two sons whose houses ultimately did more for the cause of Elves and Men than the household of her wayward step-son.

I must confess that I too am guilty of not liking Indis very much.
though I'm very glad that you like my interpretation of her. :D

as far as I'm concerned, art nouveau was made for the sole purpose of illustrating tolkien, but that's just me.


I want that necklace-belt :la:
