This is pencil drawing of girl from Germanic tribes near the Main river. Colored in photoshop CS3. Took me several days to finish it! Hope you like it! :) She has nordic jewelry that she bought from traders.

Its really beautiful! And I wonder why you took the Main river and not the more famous Rhein?

YOu should add your pictures to much more groups to get more attention^^

Thank you! :) I choose Main river because it is somehow fitted to the idea of central Germany with big plain fields and also surrounded with other regions of the country. Somehow it makes it protected and still with sense of freedom. So I checked area on Google earth and found interesting scenery around Kitzingen and Dettelbach. There is no special reason but visual. Although I really like the scenery of Rhein castles watching over river curves. There is something really nice in that scenery. I always liked castles by the rivers. :D

Good point, and youre right all the rivers are important and unique,
its just uncommon someone even knows the Main river XD

Usually the people only know the Rhein, the Donau (Danube) and maybe the Elbe.
And Bavaria lovers know the Isar.^^

What is also very famous, are the Externstein in Westfalen, theyre rocks coming straight out of the
landscape and it was an important esoteric and holy place for the old Germanics. Surely a cool scenery
for a picture.

Yes, rivers Rhein and Danube (Dunav) are more common for strangers, but, there are always small paces that capture our hearts. :D River Isar sounds like some Lord of the rings river. It has really interesting name (obviously Celtic) for area in which it spreads. :D
I didn`t know of Externstein. After I googled it, I find it very interesting and fascinating, especially because it is situated by the water. Shocked  It really looks like holy place, especially with engravings on it. :nod:

Because you think about Isengard when u hear Isar XD But no its not a celtic name its germanic,
it cames from Is/ Eis (just meaning ice), because 2000 years ago, Eis was the name for flowing water,
later it became the word for iced water. Meanings changed a lot^^

Yes Ive visited the Externsteine myself and theyre awesome, also the Hermannsdenkmal is brilliant,
Ive been there in August and the forests around, it looks so much like in ancient times.

Thank you for clarification of the name origin. :) Maybe Isen river from LOTR rings bells, who knows. But, nevertheless, very interesting information. Thanks again. :D

It is, because Tolkien used old-germanic languages for his languages, beside finnish.
I think he studied gothic, old-english/ anglo-saxon and old-german.

He even visited Germany, and a picture where he saw an old wanderer, he was inspired for Gandalf^^
Also a germanic name, from Gandwolf, the mighty wolf. His story is actually a huge mix of germanic and
other european legends, but mostly nordic, with all the runes, dwarfs and even the ring legend is based
either on the ring Draupnir from the Edda book, or from the Ring of Nibelungen.
