We've all seen The Lord of the Rings fan art before, but usually it's just a pretty alright drawing of Gollum or Frodo. This is something completely different.

Ukrainian artist, Sergei Iukhimov, has created a collection of watercolor illustrations which mimic the traditions of medieval Russian Orthadox iconography but which tell the tales of the Tolkien epic. However, these aren't just pictures he sticks on his DeviantArt account, they have actually appeared in the Russian-language editions of The Lord of the Rings. Check out some of them below:
