Swedish Gnome Sculpted Clay Figurine
Cute Swedish Gnome sculpted in polymer clay by me. The chubby nose has been dusted with pan pastel to give this swedish tomte a rosy glow.
Makes a great addition to your scandinavian christmas decorations.
A tomte is a humanoid mythical creature of Scandinavian folklore. The tomte or nisse was believed to take care of a farmer's home and children and protect them from misfortune, in particular at night, when the housefolk were asleep. The Swedish name tomte is derived from a place of residence: the house lot or tomt. The tomte/nisse was often imagined as a small, elderly man (size varies from a few inches to about half the height of an adult man), often with a full beard; dressed in the everyday clothing of a farmer.
