Bilbo Baggins and the Giant Spiders
Plaster and Paper Mache
The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien inspired this composition. En route to slay the dragon, Smaug, and claim his share of the dwarves’ treasure, Bilbo must free himself and his thirteen dwarf companions from giant spiders.
Bilbo’s pipe, his favorite possession, is caught up in his battle with the largest spider. He escapes and frees his companions by making himself invisible with the magic ring of power he found in a goblin tunnel.
