Scandinavian Christmas Ornament—God Jul Tomte
The artist from Colorado uses her Scandinavian rosemaling techniques to paint this wooden tomte Christmas ornament.
The tomte figure has its roots in a 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 bearded tomte on this ornament carries a heart bearing the words “God Jul”—Merry Christmas” in Norwegian and Swedish.
This ornament is 6 in. high. An attached ribbon allows you to attach it to your tree, the mantle, or the perfect spot on your wall.
