The Hobbit’s Bag End imagined with balloons

“In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit.”

Thus begins J.R.R. Tolkien’s fantasy classic “The Hobbit,” first published 75 years ago and slated to be released as three movies despite the fact that it’s only 300 pages long.

Indeed, the power of a franchise can be stronger than Smaug’s fiery breath. That could have been what prompted Jeremy Telford to turn his room into a persuasively good rendition of Bilbo Baggins’ home — using balloons.

The Utah artist used some 2,600 balloons to re-create the always-cozy Bag End in about 40 hours, as seen in the time-lapse vid below.
