The Shire Haymaking.
The Lord Of The Rings Tolkien Inspired Art.The Shire with Merry and Pippin. The painting shows a time when all seems well in the shire, Merry and Pippin can be seen in the foreground sharing beer and smoking Old Tobby, smoke rings and chatting are the order of the day. Farmer Maggot oversees the stoors in haymaking alongside the fertile farmlands of the Brandywine River, one of his trusty dogs Wolf sits by his side. But all is not as it seems, the traveler on the pony is telling of dark goings on in the shire and of strange folk abroad; Mrs Maggot can be seen leaning on the gate eager for gossip.
