Fans now speculate: who is the city? The distant person (an Elf?)? What age of Middle-earth is this?
For example, our in-house Tolkien expert believes this image means to show Amazon’s version of Valinor, the ancient realm also called the Undying Lands. One giveaway: the two massive, ethereal silver and gold trees in the background, called Telperion and Laurelin. Thousands of years before The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, the angel-like Valar created these trees. The evil entities Melkor (a precursor of Sauron) and Ungoliant (precursor to Shelob) later destroyed them. Yet these great and magical trees became the ancestors of Middle-earth’s sun and moon.

What do you think the concept image means to show from across the vast ages of Middle-earth?
