‘Harald’ tomte art doll
The tomte (or hustomte, or gårdstomte, or tomtenisse, etc) is the Scandinavian equivalent of the British brownie. When treated with respect the tomte protects and cares for the house, farm and animals, and is particularly fond of horses. When mistreated or disrespected, however, the tomte is known to become vengeful and petty, and though small of stature can cause huge problems to the ungrateful.
This tomte doll named Harald measures around 25 cm tall, boots to hat tip.
His face and boots are hand sculpted from polymer clay, and are therefor entirely unique.
His characteristic pointy wool hat is needle-felted, and the rest of his clothes are made from 100% recycled textiles.
He has a wire base and fully poseable arms and legs, so he can sit or stand up depending on where he will be displayed.
Harald is a completely unique and one of a kind addition to any tomte connoisseur’s collection!
