This depiction by Roger Garland is whimsical and bright, as Tolkien would have appreciated. On the left is Laurelin the Golden with beautiful intricate blossoms. On the right stands Telperion, often called the "Eldest of Trees." This portrayal seems to show the trees during the mingling of the lights;a time of "day" when the light of both trees shone together. In the background rise the mighty Pelóri, the great mountain range raised by the Valar to protect their land. According to this work the trees are quite massive, whereas others have depicted them as the size of normal trees. One very interesting component of this painting is the Stonehenge-like ring about Ezellohar, the mound of the trees. While this is not necessarily canonical, it certainly emphasizes how ancient the trees are.
