The First Gate of Gondolin: The Gate of Wood
Tuor accompanied by Voronwe have found the way to Gondolin but elves of the Noldor and of Gondolin have captured them not knowing of Tuors quest from Ulmo. Tuor must take Ulmo's council to Turgon the high king of the Noldor and of Gondolin. Since Voronwe knows the leader of the elven gaurds they have been allowed to live and be judged before Turgon. To get to Turgon and Gondolin they must pass through 7 gates the first being of wood, leading out from under the mountains that encircle the secret city.
About this creation




Close ups on the rocks. There my first rocks so I have a lot of improving to do.








Close ups of the elven guard, Tuor, and Voronwe from the other side.






The lamps carried by the elves contain a flame encased in crystal. They can't be extinguished and last for ever. I made them by cutting off the jagged part of a key and putting a 1x1 cone on what was left.

Still waiting for someone to make the full Gondolin... or at least all seven gates. But still, this is awesome.

Quoting Michael Kringe You are the only other person I know, who ever made Silmarillion creations! Great job with the Gate!
I did this for a monthly challenge on Classic-Castle and there was another Silmarillion creation http://www.brickshelf.com/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?f=459103 Intestingly enough the Silmarillion only said that there were 7 gates, I had to go to the Unfinished Tales to get the description that it was a wooden portcullis.

Very well done! Those are really good for your first rocks. Normally, I would hate to see Lego bricks cut/modified, but I like what you did to make the lanterns. Keep up the good work!

Wow, the rock formation around the gate is pretty impressive. I don't think I've seen anyone attempt to make the 7 gates of Gondolin before. Good job and good luck.
