Fan Art Friday: The Amyrlin Seat


Hallia here, taking over Fan Art Friday!  With a fresh start, we will be looking at one of the most important and trying occupations in existence: the Amyrlin Seat.  There have been many women in this role, with varying degrees of success.  Spoiler Alert; look at your own risk if you have not yet read A Memory of Light.


For our very first piece of art, we have nail art done in the fashion of what the Amyrlin represents: to be of all Ajahs and none.



Wheel of Time Nail Art - The Stole of the Amyrlin Seat and the Flame of Tar Valon ~ The Nailinator


There were several notable Amyrlins from the series that we as readers became familiar with.  The first being Siuan Sanche.



Flame of Tar Valon ~ fee-absinthe


I found this picture to be very interesting because of the medium used.  The small bits of color really are striking meshed in with the scroll-like background!  


And after Siuan, there was everyone's ~ahem~ favorite: Elaida.



Elaida Sedai ~ SicilianValkyrie


I find the look on Elaida's face in this piece to be so well done; it captures all the animosity she exuded in the books.  


Vying for power against Elaida was my own personal favorite character, Egwene.  I found her to be a great leader and very wise for her age.  Of all the art from this week, this is my favorite.  I find her here just how I picture in my own mind.



Flame of Tar Valon - Egwene Al'vere ~ endave


The final piece is one of Cadsuane.  She is the last known Amyrlin Seat, and is certainly experienced enough for the job.  I think this is shown particularly well in this piece, with her serene face not falling in the chaos around her.

That's all for this week. Stay tuned for next month's edition of Fan Art Friday!

I adore those nails!  I'd love to see some Ajah specific decorations/colors.

Great article, Mashi!  And the art . . . wow!  I think Egwene is my favorite from the selected Amyrlins but all are really well done.

Actually Dar, it was written by Hallia!  *lol*


I think Siuan looks the most like how I see her in my head.  Egwene's is very close too!
