    This is one wood carving by Otto Sveen which has been the brother of Anton Sveen.
    Both of these two brothers carved trolls and each brother had his specific character look.
    Otto Sveen trolls were usually shorter and more hunched over and Anton's were more upright and with a longer nose and different looking face as well
