Middle-earth History Meme: 2/2 Objects: The Two Trees of Valinor

Yavanna sang into existence the Two Trees, Telperion the silver and Laurelin the golden, which brought light to the world in ancient times. Telperion was referred to as male and Laurelin female.They grew in the presence of all of the Valar, watered by the tears of Nienna. The trees were destroyed by Ungoliant at the behest of Melkor. Nienna and Yavanna succeeded in reviving a last fruit of each tree. These were given to the Maiar Tilion and Arien to be carried across the sky, becoming the Sun and Moon.
