Scandinavian Christmas Ornament—3 Tomte Carolers

  • 2550

Opal uses her rosemaling techniques to paint three caroling tomte figures—or tomtar—onto a wooden ornament. The Scandinavian tomte has its roots in the mythical small elderly male being that helped protect farm and family from harm but had a scary side too. Today’s tomte is depicted in Scandinavia as a genial fellow who brings Christmas presents and cheer.

The tomtar on this ornament hold a candle, a Swedish flag, and a caroling book. The artist cuts and paints her ornaments one by one, assuring that each will have its singular charm. This ornament is 4 ¾ in. high. A ribbon is attached so that you can hang your ornament on a tree, mantle, or the perfect spot on your wall.
