Inscription On The One Ring The Lord Of The Rings And Hobbit Handmade Scroll


Inscription On The One Ring The Lord Of The Rings And Hobbit Handmade Scroll





This item is handcrafted but the image on paper is print. Image represents inscription on The One Ring from  famous Tolkien books The Lord Of The Rings And Hobbit. This is newly handmade scroll and it is the perfect gift for Tolkien fans. Edges of paper and wood ends are slightly  burnt.

The words of the ring-inscription are in Black Speech, a language devised by Sauron and used in the land of Mordor. The inscription reflects the One Ring's power to control the other Rings of Power. The writing uses Elvish letters (tengwar), in a mode adapted to the Black Speech.
Normally the One Ring appeared perfectly plain and featureless, but when heated its inscription appeared in fiery letters. A drawing of the inscription and a translation provided by Gandalf appears in Book I, Chapter 2 of The Fellowship of the Ring, "The Shadow of the Past".
Gandalf speaks the words in Black Speech in Book II, Chapter 2, "The Council of Elrond":
Ash nazg durbatul√Ľk, ash nazg gimbatul,
Ash nazg thrakatul√Ľk agh burzum-ishi krimpatul.
Translated, the words mean:
One ring to rule them all, one ring to find them,
One ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them.
