Detail from The Crucifixion; The Last Judgment - Jan van Eyck, 1425-30
Erebor. Built deep within the mountain itself, the beauty of this fortress city was legend. Its wealth lay in the earth, in precious gems hewn from rock, and in great seams of gold, running like rivers through stone. The skill of the dwarves was unequaled, fashioning objects of great beauty out of diamond, emerald, ruby and sapphire.
My favourite scene in the whole movie.
