FORTY YEARS ON... Eric Fraser's LORD OF THE RINGS radio art: Week 9


It was forty years ago, on this Sunday, that BBC Radio 4 broadcast the ninth episode of its 26-part dramatisation of The Lord of the Rings: 'The Mirror of Galadriel', with Frodo and his companions finding solace, after the loss of Gandalf, in the Elven tree-house-city, Lothlórien.  

Eric Fraser's original art for the illustration accompanying this episode's billing in Radio Times shows the Lady Galadriel's oracular water-mirror into which Frodo looks and sees possible glimpses of future times and events.
