A Portrait of an elf queen

An Elven Woman
24 Apr 2015 | From Eliette of France

This reminds me of the Lord of the Rings Middle-earth elves. They are considered to be the fairest and wisest race.  The Elves are not subject to disease or physical aging, though they could be killed by violence or by wasting away and losing the will to live. They were otherwise immortal. With her long pointer ears, long hair, and ethereal - she does seem to belong to another world, created through the poetic imagination. 

Details about the card were sadly covered in stamps, and I am still tying to find out anything about this celestial woman - the beauty behind the artwor, the postcard. Eliette finds her to be melancholic - and she does seem sad or longing for someone. Maybe eternity has taken its toll on her...
