It is inspired by an illustration made by Lorenz Frølich for the Völuspá, right?

Yes!!! Finally someone got it! Very well done my friend!
This poem was the biggest inspiration to Tolkien when creating his dwarves as you might know.

Hmm, it's an interesting idea, although I confess to being a little skeptical. The Dwarves were pretty much set up to skip the Stone Age and skip through the Bronze Age to the Iron Age, well before meeting the Moriquendi. That being said, it was an interesting and well-thought out illustration. If I had to include Stone Age Dwarves in a game setting, I would use this picture.

Well I see your point here. I differ of course but at a middle ground of sorts, because I imagine their stone age lasting for a few centuries or a maximum of one millenium as opposed to hundreds of thousands of years in real world history.
Cheers

I think you and TurnerMohan have gotten a good grip on the Dwarves at the very beginnings of their existence in the Ages of Stars. It's an image that is hard to grasp, since when the Elves met the Dwarves, they had already become the people we would recognize as "Dwarves".

 (Hmmm, I'll just have to keep scrounging in the deep places of my memory - although one fears my knowledge of Prehistory is more Animal than Human; I have a particular fondness for the Creatures that made life interesting between the Extinction of the Dinosaurs and the Ascent of Man).:) (Smile)

Ok. I feel you can use a hint. Where did Tolkien get his inspiration for the dwarves in ME?

 Norse Myth? Are these stout fellows partly based on some Prehistoric Scandinavian?

Wait is that Dwarf on the left inspired from African / Australian native bushmen with afros and spears?

Not really. Maori to be precise. And something else 😆
