The Tomte is a human-like creature of Scandinavian folklore. He/she possesses 'magical' powers, and is empowered to protect the home and family. You cannot see the receptacle here, but this is a stoneware candle holder. A Christmas present from a friend.

    Thank you very much for your kind appreciation and for the insightful and charming observation, inky!!! No question but that Col. Skotte is walking the Tomte. This is no casual stroll. Observe the length of Tomte's stride? Even with magic, he has to hustle to keep pace with the Skotte! : )) Safety note: Humans should not attemp to walk a Skotte while wearing wooden clogs!

    Yes!... I did note the full stride in the first photo..."I thought"....Man on a mission... the third photo explained it all....:-)
