Samwise "Sam" Gamgee, Ring-bearer and gardener

'Come, Mr. Frodo!' he cried. 'I can't carry it for you, but I can carry you and it as well.'

Sam was Frodo Baggins' gardener, faithful servant and close friend. He remained with him to the very end of the journey to Mount Doom.

Tolkien himself described Sam as the "chief hero", one of only two Ring-bearers strong enough to surrender the Ring voluntarily and who repeatedly saved Frodo from disaster. Without him the quest to destroy the Ring would have failed.

I wanted to depict Sam in one of his heroic moments, fighting the monstrous spider Shelob while holding the Phial of Galadriel, the star-glass, that blazed like a white torch in his hand.

I added a little bit of Shelob in the vignette at the bottom, hiding in the darkness of her lair.
