One of the Valar, Aulë created the Dwarves out of a desire
to have someone he could teach his skills to. He delighted in craftsmanship
and the substances out of which the earth was made. Aulë taught
his skills to many of the Noldor. To the Dwarves, he was called Mahal.
Some of Aulë's most famous works included the Two Lamps and
the vessels in which the fruit and flower of Laurelin and Teleperion
are contained to form the Sun and the Moon. He is married to Yavanna,
and they dwell together in Valinor.
