About this creation












Im doing a new thing where I build one vignorama (or bignette) a week. As I was pondering what I should build, I thought I might build one of my favorite scenes from The Hobbit (the book). But my favorite scene is the one with the trolls Tom, Bert, and William, or basically the entirety of Chapter 2: Roast Mutton. Unfortunately, I only have one Lego troll so far, that being one from the Castle Fantasy Era, and as Id rather not try my hand at a brick-built troll, I thought Id be doomed. Then I thought about what happened after the encounter with the trolls. A very important moment, though you may not have thought it to be important, in the history of Middle-Earth. For after the encounter with the trolls, it is said,

Dont you realize that the trolls must have a cave or hole dug somewhere near to hide from the in? We must look into it! They searched about, and soon found...a big door of stone leading to a cave. But they could not open it, not though they all pushed while Gandalf tried various incantations. Would this be any good? asked Bilbo, when they were tired and angry...He held out a largish key, though no doubt William had thought it very small and secret...They fitted it into the keyhole...Then the stone door swung back with one great big push...There were bones on the floor and a nasty smell was in the air. But there was a good deal of food jumbled carelessly on the shelves and on the ground...There were lots of clothes...and several swords of various makes, shapes, and sizes.-The Hobbit, Chapter 2: Roast mutton, J.R.R. Tolkien

What I didnt include in the quote was that among the swords were the ones that Gandalf, Thorin, and Bilbo took: Glamdring, Orcrist, and an insignificant dagger which would latter be given the name Sting. That is why it is a VERY important part of the story. Anyway, I attempted to make my scene as accurate to the BOOK as possible, while still making it look somewhat like the movie. I would love and greatly appreciate any and all comments, criticisms, complements, tips, ideas, suggestions, etc.
