Glorfindel and Ecthelion

As the forces of Morgoth assail the Hidden City, Ecthelion of the Fountain and Glorfindel of the Golden Flower, along with the rest of Gondolin, muster their forces to defend their city against all hope.

(From "The Silmarillion" by J. R. R. Tolkien, although most of the descriptions here were taken from the Lost Tales). Done as a commission for Pentangle - and loads of fun I had, too!
