Crafted Rohan Banner

It goes without saying that Peter Jackson’s attention to details sets all three installments of “The Lord of the Rings” towering above any other movie I’ve ever had the pleasure of seeing. However, being one of the ‘horsey’ set myself, I found myself especially drawn to the lovely horse-symbols and carvings in The Golden Hall of Rohan, and of the stables in particular. Watching “The Two Towers” (25 times!), I happened to notice the gorgeous banners hung on the wall behind Theoden’s throne and thought to myself, how hard would could it be to make one of those? Well, eight months later–and a lot of sweat, swearing and tears–here’s the end result of my efforts. I gave it to my sister for a Christmas present. Needless to say, it was very well received!
