|Scandinavian Gnome Folklore|
of Scandinavian gnomes emerged from a time when farms were extremely
isolated, and inhabitants throughout Scandinavia had to live through
dark, long winters. The Scandinavian gnomes sprang from the
imaginations of people who wanted to feel less alone during these cold,
usually have a long white or gray beard and large noses that cover the
entirety of their face, and they wore typical Scandinavian colors, like
brown, navy, or gray. Some of these traditional figures have bright red
caps on their heads.
and bearded, gnomes are mischievous domestic spirits. Scandinavians
believe that they’re responsible for the welfare and protection of a
farmstead and its buildings.
