Photographer's Note

The Legends and folklore of former times tells about the pixies (goblins, Danish: Nisser). They are only about 30cm high, can be well over 800 years old and live in the barn of a farm, or in caves by the wood.

Normally people and pixies are living together in harmony, but if a house owner offends the pixie of his property, many bad things can happen. His cattle can die, the harvest will go wrong.
Especially at Christmas is it important that the Pixie get his bowl of rice pudding and with a wooden spoon of course, Pixies hates metal.

Some people believe that Santa Claus a relative to the pixies, and maybe its true.

I spotted this fine couple of Pixies, at a Christmas market. They are handmade by a local lady (after true models naturally ;-) and sold as a pair only, It would be a sin to split a married couple. (350 kr. = 48 Euro)


Please watch this extra photo – Father Christmas came as well and walked around the tree with the kids while singing carols – afterwards did they all get candy and fruit.

I wish everybody a Merry Christmas and a happy new year .
