Lúthien Tinúviel by Tom Loback (2014)


In July 2014 before my travel to Norway Tom Loback (1949-2015; see all Elendilion’s articles on Tom Loback) asked me to translate something into Sindarin for his new artwork (he also wrote: „Have fun in Norway – don’t fall in a fjord”). We never completed this task together. I sent the translation and the transcription to Tom, but there was no time to put it all together. Tom left the circles of this world on March 5, 2015 (see Tom Loback – In memoriam).

Nai Eru se mánata!

Now, in cooperation with Tom’s wife, Susan Ryan, I present Tom Loback’s last artwork Lúthien Tinúviel (2014) with a Sindarin text chosen by Tom and with the Tengwar transcription. In my opinion Lúthien resembles here Tom’s partner and wife, Susan – his beloved Lúthien.

The text accompanied to this splendid artwork reads as follows.

This is the artwork by Tom Loback with a fragment of Tolkien’s The Lay of Leithian, Canto VII, verses 205-206 translated into Sindarin and transcribed with the Elvish letters called the Tengwar by Ryszard Derdziński. Tolkien’s text reads as follows:

recalling Lúthien dancing fair,
with wild white roses in her hair

It has been translated into Sindarin and rendered in the Elvish script (‚Mode of Beleriand’) by Ryszard Derdziński (Galadhorn).

renel Lúthien lilthol vain
na-viril rhaw lyss vi fîn dîn


Version with the Sindarin inscription


G-i-P stands for Gwaith-i-Phethain, ?The Fellowship of the Word-smiths?™ or the linguistic website devoted to post-Tolkienian constructions in the ?œreconstructed? languages of Middle-earth [link].
