Scandinavian Christmas Ornament—Norwegian Round-the-World Girl
Opal uses her Scandinavian rosemaling techniques to paint “Round-the-World Girl” Christmas ornaments. Each ornament consists of two wooden parts—a stylized girl in a costume from her country and a heart. The two are held together with a short chain.
The heart on this ornament bears the message “Gladelig Jul,” which is one way to say “Merry Christmas” in Norway. The blond, blue-eyed Norwegian girl wears a bunad or regional folk costume. The ornament has not only been hand painted but the wooden pieces have been cut by hand. When hanging, the parts together measure 7 ¼ in from top to bottom. A red ribbon is attached so that you can hang your ornament on a tree, mantle, or the perfect spot on your wall.
