Building a Doors of Durin Arch

Hi there,

I'm a new member to this forum, I'm building a Doors of Durin arch to be placed above a doorway. I've done a bit of research on the story but I've come across two versions of it. Can anyone help me as to what the difference is between them?

Thanks in advance,

Hello (if you're still around)!

The bottom or second image looks like it follows the book... it's kind of small on my computer but from what I can see anyway. Or just look at Tolkien's image in the book itself, in The Fellowship of the Ring, chapter A Journey in the Dark (you don't even need to buy the book if you have a bookstore handy, or library).

I didn't really study the top image but from a glance it isn't reproducing the Mode of Beleriand as Tolkien wrote it, which I assume is what you want in any case.

Hey, when you get it done, will you please post pics??? :o
This sounds like such a great and interesting idea! We definitely want to see all about it... especially if there is any chance of getting "during construction" pics... that'd be wonderful, too!!! :)
