Just catching up with my f-list now I have my latest chapter posted! I love this manip - the gentle smile, the wistfulness. I remember reading a review of FOTR (can't remember who wrote it) but the writer said he thought one of the reasons Elijah was so believable as Frodo was that he didn't have a 'modern face'. I found that interesting and think it could also be why Elijah looks so good in all these old paintings:)

And Jan's poem - as beautiful and as moving as always:)

Oh, Paulie, I'm glad you got to see and read this. I love the quality Frodo has in this image, too, that wistfulness. And Jan's poem gives that wistfulness--and more--voice.

I never have read the quote you mentioned, which sounds extremely apt, only ones likening him to Caravaggio's angels ("a Baroque angel", they also have said). If you ever find the original quote, I hope you'll post it. :)
