Called a tomte in Swedish, tonttu in Finnish and nisse in Danish and Norwegian, this is one of the most famous beings from Nordic folklore. Traditionally, the tomte was the guardian of the home and other buildings in the homestead as well as the caretaker of the livestock. They are known to anger easily if offended, so it is of utmost importance to treat them with respect, and remember to leave them a bowl of porridge on Christmas Eve. 

These ornaments are 4.2x2 inches, and are made out of beautiful Cherry plywood.
