The Bag End Bonsai Trayscape is Fit for the 'Lord of the Rings' Set

The Bag End Bonsai Trayscape celebrates adorable hobbit abodes in a creative and lush way. Instead of recreating the hilly home in typical miniature fashion, this design incorporates a real bonsai tree, which adds a level of authenticity, not to mention tranquility. A slightly different interpretation when it comes to tributes to the beloved 'Lord of the Rings' franchise, the Bag End Bonsai Trayscape is beautiful to behold.

Created by Chris Guise, the Bag End Bonsai Trayscape uses such materials as roofing tile for the illusion of red bricks, wood for the fence and florists' Oasis as filler for the hill, which helps to absorb water while maintaining a specific shape. Finished with such careful details as brass doorknobs and tiny broomsticks, the hobbit home diorama is quite realistic save for its size.
