Noirinan by MatejCadil Noirinan by MatejCadil
Noirinan, or The Valley of the Tombs, was located between the southwest and southeast ridges of the Mountain Meneltarma on the island of Númenor. The shallow valley held the tombs of the Kings of Númenor, cut into the rock of the mountain. In Noirinan was also the spring of the river Siril, the main course of water which flowed across the island of Númenor.

If you like my Tolkien-related art, look at my related journal or gallery folder.
But you can find even more of my pictures on my website Angrenost.cz. It's in Czech, but you can still look over the gallery of illustrations. Enjoy! :-)

I really like this piece. ^ ^ Wonder if JRRT was inspired by old Egypt with this description. ... Is it the Siril spring in the background among the rocks?

I think I've read it somewhere (though I don't remember the source) that ancient Egypt was generally a great inspiration for Númenor, with all its impressive stonemasonry and the feel of a lost civilization..
