Thank you Urulókë ! :)

Here is the photo of his signature on the Catalogue of the exhibition, alongside with Vincent Ferré, the curator and french Tolkien scholar.
He signed "musicalement", because we spoke about the use of music in the work of his grand father. I asked him if ever he knows what were his grand father tastes in music. And he replies that it was unlikely that he used to learn a lot of recorded music but probably did like a lot of irish traditionnal music !!

Such a nice person.
