lord of the rings

Marc Jacobs A/W 08

It began with the forging of the Great Rings. Three were given to the Elves; immortal, wisest and fairest of all beings. Seven, to the Dwarf Lords, great miners and craftsmen of the mountain halls. And nine, nine rings were gifted to the race of Men, who above all else desire power. For within these rings was bound the strength and the will to govern over each race.

But they were all of them deceived, for a new ring was made. In the land of Mordor, in the fires of Mount Doom, the Dark Lord Sauron forged in secret, a master ring, to control all others. And into this ring he poured all his cruelty, his malice and his will to dominate all life. One ring to rule them all.

But they were all of them deceived again, for Sauron did not stop with one. His lust for rings and power consumed him, and he poured his dark will into another ring, and soon after, another. Upon not one of his cruel fingers did the nakedness of mortality lay, and still he desired more rings.

Rings to rule them all...
