All the elements are represented in the scene. The earth and water of the landscape meet fire and air. Wind blows over the landscape and over Eowyn, binding the figure and the background. Eowyn has a deep and elemental connection to Rohan

Eowyn is parallel to the flag. The wind blows the flag and Eowyn uniting them as emblems of the kingdom. Eowyn is every part a representative of Rohan as the flag of the kingdom. The image on the flag is of the horse, the emblem of Rohan. The horse is a symbol of the will. The affinity of Eowyn with her kingdom comes from her developed willfulness.
