Nisse and Tomte inspired Father Christmas - Freestanding or to hang on a Christmas tree.

A Nisse (Norweigan) and a Tomte (Swedish) are similar characters. In folklore, they are mischievous sprite-like figures that protect the farmstead. Tomte means "homestead man" and Nisse is from the Scandinavian form of Nicholas, Nils.

I adore this figure. I had so much fun making him. He would love a good home.

This is a Santa figure inspired by the Tomte and Nisse legends. He is approximately 8cm high and 5.6cm wide.

He has been handmade with polymer clay and sealed with a light coat of resin. You can have him as a freestanding head or you can suspend him from the tree by looping ribbon around the curve of his red hat. He has a pair of glasses fashioned from silver crafting wire.
