Miniature Hobbit Home: Bag End Bonsai Trayscape

This beautiful house that looks like a hobbit home is actually a bonsai artwork, a reinterpretation of Tolkien’s fantastic hobbit home where Bilbo Baggins, Frodo Baggins and Samwise Gamgee lived. Inspired by stories filled with magic, wizards ,elves and other characters, Chris Guise, an artist and a bonsai enthusiast created this artwork entitled the Bag End Bonsai Trayscape. It took him more than 80 hours to recreate this hobbit house. Chris Guise explains how he created this project: “Not long after I bought this tree I carved a shari down the trunk, covered the edges with cut paste and left it alone. After two years the edges had callused over nicely. Not long after I did it I decided that I would like to hollow out the trunk further but never got round to it.The carving work was done with a dremel, using various small carving bits.” Then he added the windows, walls and all the remaining details in order to recreate the home where both The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings movies begun and ended. We have to admit that this reinterpretation looks quite realistic.
