Damen i søen, The Lady of the Lake (in Danish)

Few people know that Viviane pretty much stole Lancelot from Elaine, his mother (who had just seen her husband die.)
I really wanted to illustrate this particular moment of Arthurian legend, because of its emotional impact (I was reading Jean Markale's Lancelot du lac and was struck by Elaine's suffering for her baby son, opposed to Viviane's almost anonymity and calm) and while doing my research, I was very surprised to find only this [link] illustration by Howard Pyle that depicts it... and the hundreds of single-ladies-of-the-lake that stand amid the waters, on dA... Anyway, enjoy.
