The Departure of Boromir

Mixed media acrylic painting. 30×40″

This is a mixed media painting of Boromir from the Lord of the Rings series dying at the end of the first film/beginning of the second book. I assembled book pages from the relevant chapters of Tolkien’s series and glued them to stretched canvas. There are 9 pages outlined around the figure in this painting to symbolize the 9 members of the fellowship of the ring, with the chapter title “The departure of Boromir” arranged at the top. Above that, the title page “the breaking of the fellowship” is centered, with a rings of pages circling around the hero at the focal point. Trees that resemble the two towers encircle the painting, and also symbolize the ring and eye of Sauron from a distant view. There’s more to it but any way… 😂 this is my favorite painting I’ve ever made in homage to the GOAT film series and I hope you enjoy. Feedback welcome!”
