I will suggest that the statues were themselves Druedain. I recall two stories, I believe in the Lost Tales; in one, a man comes upon an empty house with a statue of a Druedain. He began to make himself comfortable and hangs his coat on the statue, at which point it informed him that it was in a sort of meditative state and asked him to kindly take his coat.
In another story, a family either knows or hired as a manservant a Druedain. At one point he carves a statue of another Druedain and explains that the depiction died and the statue is a memorial. One day when only the family's child is home, the cottage catches fire and the child screams for help. A Druedain runs out of nowhere and stamps the fire out (in a manner that ensures great damage to itself), then runs back in the direction of the statue, which is later found in the same place- except its feet are blackened with soot and cracked from intense heat.
This would also hint at the nature of Druedain as being golem-like creatures made of stone from the Earth; not themselves of the major races but more akin in nature to animals than more than before. Thus a dead Druedain would be expected to be a statue.
- Refuted by the author himself. Check UT, section The Drúedain. Drûg were human, not golems: they are listed among the Edain as a (strange) breed, not alien creatures. Thus Drûg bodies would decay like other humans' bodies. Nowhere are the statues referred to as Drûg: they're always called statues, and while they may have been "empowered" once there is no reason to assume they were somehow petrified Drûg. -- Jordi·✆ 14:33, 3 April 2006 (UTC)
Fair use rationale for Image:Dunharrowwide.jpgEdit
Image:Dunharrowwide.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in Wikipedia articles constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.
Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.
If there is other other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page.
