Illustration by Lennart Helje ~ Lennart Helje is a Swedish illustrator particularly known for his wondrously moody paintings of gnomes either with animals or without, but usually with snow. He was born in Lima (I'm assuming a village or city in Sweden and not the Lima of Peru) in 1940.

Tomte or Nisse are Gnomes that take care of the farm and home. At Christmas you MUST leave a bowl of steaming hot rice porridge for them or they will play harmless tricks on you like letting the animals out or switching the salt and sugar. God Jul means Merry Christmas in Norwegian.
