Talk:Dragon-helm of Dor-lómin

[edit] Example Image?

I found an actual helm that fits almost perfectly the description of the Dragon-helm. It was made by the legendary armorer Filippo Negroli. You can see it here. I'm wondering whether it would be appropriate to use the image in this article? --Ebakunin 01:33, 28 June 2006 (EDT)

Good question. I've been wondering where we should draw the line as well, mainly with images approaching the Dungeons and Dragons or fantasy style opposed to strictly Tolkien. Maybe we can use the image and state it was a possible inspiration for the Professor? As long as we state the artist was not inspired by Middle-earth, I would be okay with it, a similar image is better than none at all. --Hyarion 01:39, 28 June 2006 (EDT)

[edit] History section

I'm unsure of including the info about the destiny of the Helm beyond the Sack of Bar-en-Danwedh in the History section. That info is only given in notes and the final destiny still remains unknown. Instead I would point out that Túrin wore a dwarf-mask in Nargothrond and the Battle of Tumhalad, which is what Christopher included in his editions (info that he did not invented, but chose). --LorenzoCB 14:50, 19 June 2020 (UTC)
