Not All Those Who Wander Are Lost: The Lord of the Rings Ketubah
The Lord of the Rings is not your typical “good vs. bad” story. It is a saga about heroes who, in spite of all the hardships and obstacles, are determined to save their world from evil. This masterpiece is in fact a perfectly designed blend of different worlds, dimensions, and creatures, thanks to Tolkien’s love and dedication to folklore and philology. The Lord of the Rings, side by side with yet another masterpiece, The Hobbit, introduced an entirely new, complex genre known as high fantasy. The Lord of the Rings is a world-famous trilogy, which entails The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Rings (2001), The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers (2002), and The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King (2003).
Strong symbolism is one of the most peculiar characteristics throughout the trilogy. The ring, as the main symbol, changes its meaning and purpose and goes through multiple phases, just like the characters. At first, it is a symbol of reckless power and it serves the evil. However, as the story progresses, new symbols such as the sword counteract the negativity of the ring, symbolizing unity, love, and hope.
Yet another important symbol in the Lord of the Rings is Mount Doom, from where the ring originates. Since it is the birthplace of the ring, it is also the only place where it can be destroyed, which is precisely why it is Frodo’s ultimate destination. Frodo, being the ring-bearer, is the protagonist of the trilogy, chosen by the wizard Gandalf to complete the hardest of tasks – return the ring to Mordor. In Frodo the hobbit, we see purity, courage, but also a more “human” side. Frodo is a symbol of internal battles between good decisions and temptations which can happen to everyone, no matter the character and the goodness of the heart.
The leading idea in the Lord of the Rings is a journey – small journeys, complicated paths, and journeys of individual growth. The Lord of the Rings is a tale of fellowship, temptation, adventure, and ultimately – revelation.
My Precious Ketubah is a mesmerizing, breathtaking piece inspired by the dreamlike landscape seen in Rivendell from Lord of the Rings. It is dreamy, ethereal, and both sensible and bold at the same time. This Lord of the Rings-inspired ketubah design is an ideal option for Tolkien admirers, dreamers, and fiction fans!
