Far beneath the ground, tunneling for Mithril in sunless black rock, the Dwarves disturbed something that had remained safely entombed since ages past, a being of unfathomable terror, relic of a time of gods and giants, a creature of which like should never walk again in Middle-earth and for whom there were few equals remaining in the world: a Balrog of Morgoth.
A demon composed of shadow and flame, the Balrog could be harmed by no blade or device of Dwarf design. By the hundreds, Durin's people and the Dwarf King himself fell before the beast, after named Durin's Bane.
The incredible Bane of Durin giclee joins a range of gorgeous art prints and lithographs by Jerry Vanderstelt.
Tolkien's world of Middle-earth is a far-reaching story of sweeping landscapes and breathtaking castles set deep in its own detailed and ancient history. Along with its many stories, races and tales of war and honour, the books describe cities and castles equally as rich and detailed as the characters who live within them.
This beautiful Fine Art Giclee features the Balrog, from The Lord of the Rings films. It has been printed using the finest materials available, utilizing archival inks as well as Breathing Color's "Pura Velvet" Fine Art paper. It comes signed and numbered by the artist with a Certificate of Authenticity.
Bane of Durin comes in a Limited Edition of 2,000.
