Luthien Tends Beren
Painting - Digital
The Tale of Beren and L�thien is the story of the love and adventures of the mortal Man Beren and the immortal Elf-maiden L�thien, as told in several works of J. R. R. Tolkien. In this painting, L�thien and Huan, Hound of Valinor wait for Beren to wake after healing the poisoned wound Carcharoth the werewolf left him when biting off his hand. The Great eagles placed the spent couple on the edge of Doriath looking north past Gondolin, over Sauron�s Isle, which Luthien destroyed and left in ruin.
"And at the last the eagles set them down upon the borders of Doriath; and... Huan came to her, and together they tended Beren, even as before when she healed him of the wound that Curufin gave to him. But this wound was fell and poisonous. Long Beren lay, and his spirit wandered upon the dark borders of death,
knowing every an anguish that pursued him from dream to dream." chapter 19, The Silmarillion.
