    Yes, he does have a little doggy face! A demented doggy, but a doggy all the same!

    all great: his white belly, the gem on the top of the pile, the array or treasure and the writting in the vase

    Is it just me or is the cloud around Bilbo mean he’s invisible?

    I think you’re right, blackxcat, and Bilbo is invisible in this part.

    I love it! Actually, Bilbo is bowing to Smaug in the right-hand side. This is classic Tolkein art.

    The tengwar on the urn say something like “gold…Thrain” and then possibly “a quest” on the second line.

    I can read the tengwar but it is kind of a jumble of consonants as far as I can (blurrily) see.

    Perhaps the inscription on that jar is in Dwarfish?

    Does think that the thing with the possibly Tengwar on it looks like a cup of pop-corn? Or is it just me.

    Smaug looks awfully, well, cartoony. And small. Also, I didn’t think Dwarves would make a habit of using
