The art of TurnerMohan

TurnerMohan has some of the most intriguing interpretations of Middle Earth out there–and pretty in-depth discussions as to the why his ideas make perfect sense. Viking-inspired elves? Elves are Norse-derived to begin with. Valinor as Olympus and the pre-Exile Noldor as quasi-Greek statuary? Elves as powerful, statuesque warriors instead of androgynous waifs in floaty robes…hell yeah.
