You bring up a good point, Mith. Why the lack of paintings? Perhaps it is because 3-D sculptures are, well, 3-D and therefore better?

The Rohirrim have tapestries with pictures on them in Edoras. That's also "flat art". But they are not Elves.

(Incidentally, Varie also had tapestries)

And Elves also had another way of conveying art - through visions. I mean art as in "arts and crafts", not "abilities". Art conveys certain images to the viewer; so why not consider this art?
