However, I was completely unprepared for the images I saw when I found Carol Law Conklin's Etsy shop, Amity Farm Batik. Her batiks are more than the usual abstract squiggles and shapes: she has actually depicted scenes from the works of Tolkien, and done it so beautifully I believe Mr. Tolkien would have approved (and he was quite picky).
Just take a look for yourself!

To see more, visit her shop Amity Farm Batik and search for Lord of the Rings. But make sure you look at her non-Tolkien images as well--they are stunning!
