I adore Tomtes, and have a little collection including a giant one! You might also know them as Nisse.
They live in your house and are said to protect it, but you have to be good to them as they're easily offended and will get you back! Nowadays, Tomte/Nisse are often associated with Christmas, although I have to say mine are up all year round protecting my little house!
The markers are made of wood, laser etched by me and finished by hand. The measure approximately 2cm tall.
