8″ Standing Tomte
Hi, I am a standing 8″ Tomte. I wear a red and white striped hat. My cap is wired so it can be posed in many positions…
A Tomte is a mythical creature of Scandinavian folklore. The Tomte is believed to take care of a farmer’s home and children and protect them from misfortune, especially at night while the housefolk are asleep.
The Tomte is still often pictured on Christmas cards and house and garden decorations as the little man of Jenny Nyström’s imagination, often with a horse or cat, or riding on a goat or in a sled pulled by a goat, and for many people the idea of the Tomte still lives on, if only in the imagination and literature.
