"fairly but not quite straight into the side of the hill" [In reply to] Can't Post

"The Hall at Bag-End", intended as the concluding picture of The Hobbit, which gives a view looking out from Bilbo's door, likewise indicates that the hallway is not perpendicular to the face of the Hill: it shows the hillside adjacent to the path. There are of course, various minor discrepancies between the various pictures and the texts. However, squire's suggested symbolism is perhaps strengthened by a hole that does not go straight in: thus Bilbo's wandering Took aspect is shown as a bit greater than his homey Baggins aspect.
