Nienna: Lady of Mercy by Lelia Nienna: Lady of Mercy by Lelia
This characters belongs to J.R.R Tolkien's world.

She is Nienna, the Lady of Mercy and she's a Vala (a goddess), Queen of pity.

She weeps constantly but her tears are those of healing and pity, not of sadness, and often have potency; for example, she watered the Two Trees with her tears, and later washed the filth of Ungoliant away from them once they were destroyed.

She was in favour of releasing Melkor after his sentence, not being able to see his evil nature.

(thanks wikipedia)

I think that Nienna is really wonderfull she isn't the typical pain goddes loam and furious, she's calm and pious.

I didn't know that she was Gandalf's tutor! That's interesting. I really like the feeling in this picture, and her hair looks great :)
