LOTR Fans Can’t Get Enough Of This Tolkien-Style Map Of The Hejaz Region In Saudi


Salwa Najm is a Canada-based artist who shares her works from time to time on Twitter. But one of her recent works just went well beyond her modest following on the platform and has gone viral. She drew a map of the Hejaz on which you can see cities like Makkah and Madinah in a style that draws upon J. R. R. Tolkien’s works. Just to provide some background, Tolkien is the man who wrote the Lord of the Rings series.

The original was sold almost immediately as word went around.
