His mission failed with The One Ring taken from him, and tortured by the cruel servants of Sauron, Frodo faces a world in which all he has loved will be lost.

Much the way saints have been portrayed in historical works of art, the nudity of Frodo emphasizes his vulnerability and desire to be spiritually released from the pain of the mortal world. This is not the isolated act of a single orc beating down a frail hobbit, but rather a representation of the oppressive will of Sauron threatening to place all of Middle-earth beneath his rule: shadow and shackles are the future for the inhabitants of Middle-earth.
