The White Tree of Gondor is the last survival of the Nimloth tree that grew in the island of Tol Eressea. It was a gift by the Valar to the Men of Numenor. The tree’s fate closely mirrors the fate of men. The fall of Numenor saw the burning of the Nimloth tree … but all was not lost because Isildur managed to smuggle a seed back to Middle Earth, where he planted in the courtyard of the White City.
This is a mixed media handbound journal. Inspired by the story of the White Tree of Gondor, the centerpiece is an assemblage of several pieces of mixed metal filigrees, washers and clock gears. On top of this mixed metal pedestal, sits a rustic piece of veined milky white Picasso Jasper, symbolizing the single surviving seed of the White Tree rescued by Isildur. Surrounding the seed pedestal, fully hand-sculpted using epoxy clay, are tendril-like roots forming a protective wall round the seedling. These roots lay dormant but not dead, awaiting patiently for the return of the King, to once again spring to life.
The page marker is made up of a brass chain and ends with a piece of sea-sediment bead and brass findings. The artwork is then aged and distressed. The covers are finished with several coats of varnish.
