Swedish Christmas Gnome

Cute Swedish Christmas Gnome sculpted in polymer clay by me. The chubby nose has been dusted with pan pastel to give this swedish gnome tomte a rosy glow.  This Swedish Tomte is sporting a grey hat and red pants with black boots to complete the outfit.

He would like nothing more than to be part of your Swedish 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.
