Well here are a few more Tomte’s that will soon be on my Etsy site. I am having so much fun with these little guys I hate leaving my studio to do other things, like work. The Tomte is a mythical creature of Scandinavian folklore. It was believed that he took care of a farmer’s home and children and would protect them from any misfortune. His size varies from a few inches to about half the size of an adult man. They are an important part of Christmas and are likened to a benevolent gnome.
Now that we have a light dusting of snow I am really getting in the Christmas spirit. Plus I have a number of shows coming up in the next month I need to get ready for those.
