Mirror of Desire

with 3 comments


In the novel, Lord of the Rings, the Mirror of Galadriel was a silver basin of water used in the Elven realm of Lothlórien by Galadriel, an Elven queen. The Mirror was used to grant the viewer an image of the past, present, and possible future.   In many ways it was a mirror of desire as it sometimes showed images that the viewer wanted to happen so it was not really an oracle but an object of the Imagination – and we all know how vivid that can be.  One of J.R.R. Tolkien’s warnings was, I think, be careful what you desire least it trip you up.  And he showed this again and again in his mythic novels which were, at least partially, an allegory of what happened politically during the two World Wars.

I’ve combined two of .:Tm:.Creation’s Nature scenes today, these are such fun to work with because you can edit and move constituents around until you’ve got it just right!  It’s also possible to totally unlink these and use parts of them separately.  Say, you have a group of flowers within the scene… these can be unlinked and copied around to build up your landscape.  The Rock Nature Scene sits at the back of my picture, but in front of this are also grasses and flowers…


Here’s full details of the Home & Garden products used in the scene today:-
