Gandalf by KainTheVampireLord Gandalf by KainTheVampireLord
11cm, bronze

I have no english edition of Silmarillion, so my translation is not correct. The quote can be find on the last pages when Círdan gives Narya to Gandalf, and he says this about the ring.

Edit Here's the exact quote (thanks to ~asaph70 )
"thou shalt rekindle hearts to the valour of old in worldthat grows chill"

Some info to avoid misunderstanding:
-I did not bought it, it is my own work (you really think a photo of a shopped item would deserve to be featured? :) )
-the text is hungarian, not elvish :) These coins were my graduation works, and university didn't preferred using foreign language.

Now, I am a bit curious of what the university thought about it as it was a work for graduation? Hope you don't mind me asking...

Thank you :)
The uni was fine with that, I was on the art teacher training, graduation had 2 parts, one essay and an artwork as art is not a theoretical field. Although they were against fantasy with full force, I succeeded to get a consultant who said she doesn't mind the theme, she as a sculptor wanted me to proove with the work I understood the technique and can use it with quality.

Incredible. I was searching for Gandalf art and this just popped out at me. I think it makes it even better having it in Hungarian, it makes it even more unique.

Thank you, I'm glad you like this piece :) Originally wanted to write the text in English as the original language of Lord of the Rings, but you're right the Hungarian text makes it a personal work, and on a side note it's funny whenever it's confused with Quenya :)

I thought it was Quenya at first glance. I didn't know it wasn't until I read your note on it. Great work.
