Chart of body parts (1988). This schematic artwork teaches us the Quenya names of the parts of body. On the first picture all Quenya names are written in tengwar. The second artwork presents these names written in Latin letters




The Fifth Battle - northwest quadrant (1990). The graphic depicts the climatic hour of the Nirnaeth Arnoediad during which the Elves, Men and Dwarves of the Union of Maedhros were tragically and utterly defeated by the Hosts of Morgoth led by Gothmog the Balrog and Glaurung the Dragon. The tengwar border uses a Quenya mode while the notations of the battle formations are Sindarin using the mode of Beleriand. This may indicate the origin of the piece was Eregion in the Second Age. However the calligraphic and illustrative styles point to a possibly later period.
