fter their sojourn in Lothlorien, the Fellowship continued its journey towards Mordor. They travelled by way of the Great river in three light boats which had been provided by Galadriel’s folk. Provisioned with Elven waybread and equipped with Elven rope, the party set out upon the swift waters of the Anduin. Frodo, Sam and Aragorn took one vessel, while Merry and Pippin travelled with Boromir (MX669). Gimli and Legolas took the third (MZ645).
This vignette depict an anxious Frodo standing astern and contemplating the frightening fate that probably awaits him. Aragorn sits, watchful for Orcs on either bank while Sam looks behind at the strange log that appears to follow the party.
Boat measures 87mm in length.
