Given that the Girdle of Melian was presumably several hundred miles in circumference, I doubt it. :)

Well the 'girdle" Tolkien meant was just the word for "belt" in the somewhat archaic style he wrote in ;-)

Still a bloody hilarious picture though! And the description XD

I still wouldn't like to meet someone whose belt was several hundred miles long!

Though I wonder if there actually is any theoretical limit on the size of an Ainu's physical manifestation. Yavanna takes the form of a tree sometimes. Could Varda take the form of a star? (As in, a million-kilometre-across ball of nuclear fire.)
