A nisse (usually Norwegian) and a tomte (usually Swedish) are similar characters. They are both solitary, mischievous domestic sprites responsible for the protection and welfare of the farmstead and its buildings.
Regretfully he has yet to clean my house but since I have seen no spirits I believe he is protecting it.
Great addition to your home decor. This little gnome saw a documentary about Attila and thought it was very interesting and thinks he might be a descendant so he has adopted the style. He is wearing a brown coat, has a wooden shield and a bow and arrow. Ready to rampage and pillage or maybe sit and enjoy some hot cocoa.
Gnome is approx 5.3" tall and 3" wide at base. Not a toy or intended for children, for decorative use only.
All of my pieces are 100% handmade by myself, normally under the supervision of helper kitty. I use stamps, stencils, decals, and occasionally a bit of my own drawing for each piece. Due to the wonderfulness of handmade ceramics there can be imperfections, adding to the distinctive appearance.
