"'...You are a very fine person, Mr. Baggins, and I am very fond of you; but you are only quite a little fellow in a wide world after all!'

'Thank goodness!' said Bilbo laughing, and handed him the tobacco-jar."

- The Hobbit, Chapter XIX: The Last Stage


After all Bilbo has gone through on his great adventure, we readers are delighted to find him restored to comfort in the final scene of J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit. He is now fully equal to welcoming an unexpected guest or two - especially when those guests are his dear friends Gandalf and Balin. It’s a lovely, autumnal eve, and there are comfortable seats before the fire, and pipe-weed to smoke, and news and laughter to share.


Things to notice in this original, hand-done painting of the final scene in The Hobbit:


  • Bilbo’s adventure is referenced by the little vase of flowers on his table. The daisy is for his riddles in the dark, and the snapdragon refers to Smaug.
  • We hear that Bilbo’s waistcoat has become more extensive since Balin last saw him, and that it has gold buttons. I have also embroidered it with clover and bees in tribute to his time in the house of Beorn. This is the same waistcoat you can see Bilbo wearing at his eleventy-first birthday party.
  • Meanwhile, Balin is described as wearing a magnificent jeweled belt. I have given him one of silver and rubies, clasped with a “B” rune. I have also trimmed his tunic with embroidered ravens in token of the dwarves’ special relationship with such fowls as Carc and Roäc.
  • The famous tobacco-jar, which gives us the final two words in The Hobbit, is decorated with nicotiana-like flowers of the hobbits’ pipe-weed plants.


By bringing home this museum-quality print, you will get to enjoy all of these details close-up, adding rich color and storytelling to any room. Bilbo loved to think back on his adventure, and wrote it down for all of us so that we could one day have The Hobbit. This painting celebrates not only Bilbo’s epic journey, but the great satisfaction of being “back again” at the end of it all.
