Artist's Description

Inspired by the Spider’s of Middle Earth.. Tolkeins Lord of the Rings

The evil creature of spider-form who was Melkor’s accomplice in the Darkening of Valinor, and who fled with him to Middle-earth. The creatures that infested the Ered Gorgoroth were her offspring and descendants, as was Shelob who dwelt on the borders of Mordor.

1 This quote comes from The Silmarillion: Of the Flight of the Noldor, which also tells us ‘…some have said that she ended long ago, when in her uttermost famine she devoured herself at last’.

2 Ultimately from ungwë liante. ‘Gloomweaver’ is Tolkien’s preferred rendering, but ‘Gloom spider’ seems to be a more literal translation. In Elvish, ‘weaver’ and ‘spider’ are closely related words, and in English too: ‘spider’, ‘spindle’ and ‘spinner’ all share a common ancestry.
