    „Minas Tirith“ is a fictional city and castle in J. R. R. Tolkien's Middle-earth writings. Its famous landmarks are the White Tower and the White Tree, the symbol of Gondor which only blossoms when a king returns to Gondor.

    The tree and its blossoms are symbolized in this beautiful asymmetric shawl. The shape reminded me of the cuneiformed architecture of Gondor, and so it became the namesake for the shawl.

    Because of its asymmetric shape the shawl can be worn in different ways. The embossed leaves will be an absolute eyecatcher which can be further enhanced by adding tassels.
