Do you remember the Hobbits of J.R.R. Tolkien’s classic The Lord of The Rings? Of course you do. The Hobbit’s Holes that he had described in his books are exquisitely picturized in Peter Jackson’s The Lord of the Rings film series especially in the first part The Fellowship of the Ring. The hole belongs to Bilbo baggins and his nephew Frodo Baggins.
The village Shire where hobbits reside, is described as lavishly green with dense vegetation, shrubs and cattles. The houses, I would rather call them holes, in which they stay are underground and covered with grass and vegetation on the top. The holes had undersized circular doors.
LOTR is fantasy but has inspired artists to create similar sculptures. Here is a similar structure inspired from LOTR at West Wales. This hole 🙂 is built by joint effort of Simon Dale and his Father-in-Law. The structure took 1000-1500 working hours to build spanned across four months. You’ll amazed to know that the hole is created with just USD $4600.
Look at these amazing pictures of the hole. These are 100% genuine and real.
