He reminds me of my grandfather... Hardanger Folkemuseum, Norway. The mens bunad jacket and waistcoat are made from red woolen cloth with green edging, decorated with plenty of forged silver buttons. Used on special occasions are the silver ring, watch chain, and the colorful silk scarf. The wooden goblet, like the one he is holding, was used all over all over Scandinavia.

Telemark bunad - Norwegian folk costume. I love this one... the colors and embroideries are just perfect! I'm so sorry I'm not Norwegian! :-D

My Norwegian grandmother made me a costume for my doll just like this cute girl is wearing.

More bunads mixed with modern clothing. Very interesting.
