These TROLLS of latex are made to hand. The materials used for building the small TROLLS are all natural ones.
The principal ingredients have origin from certain types of trees and from substances of the ground. They are moulded and finished up completely to hand, for this, every piece, will have generally some small variations of form, color, eyes, hair and aspect, that ago yes that every TROLLS is different one from the other
trolls of Norway.

Each TROLL requires a considerable amount of work. First of all, the artist transforms his ideas into three-dimensional characters, and it takes several days to complete. Since then a mold factory model and why this is good for the production takes several weeks. Begins at this point along the manufacturing process. It takes at least a day and a night to forge a TROLL. Moreover, because to survive during the second night through a secret process that gives it strength and hardens the surface. Finally, after another series of transformations, assumes its individual characteristic.
THE HISTORY OF THE TROLL
Up there, in the far north, where winter storms are unleashed with violence against the windswept coast and the Arctic, there is a long, narrow country. Today this country is covered with snow and ice only in winter but a long, long time ago a heavy blanket of ice covered him for a millennium. When the climate began to change and the ice gradually retreated northward, men who lived south of the ice they followed in their retreat, took possession of the country, called it assumed the name of Norway and Norwegians. They found a very beautiful country and believed to be its first inhabitants, but it was not long before discovering that the country was already inhabited by a large number of strange creatures who dwell in the strangest places. In the mountains, and of these there were just so many, trolls lived.
Their leader was Dovregubben II. Some trolls were giants, while others could be quite small, but all were very old. You could see them only at night or dusk because these creatures could not stand the sunlight. If unable to return to the mountain before sunrise, and burst or were petrified. The trolls were like men, but had only four fingers on each hand and four toes on each foot. They also had a long nose long, so that trolls often used it to turn the soup into the pot; were hairy and shaggy, and all had a tail that resembled that of cows. Even if you had something that was terrifying, and often were benign and gullible could happen that some of them could cheat contadinotti well well. Among the many supernatural gifts they had, there was also the one that allowed them to take an entirely different form than their usual. It happened that the trolls would evolve into amazingly beautiful young women. These were called "Huldre", as if they were the nymphs, and could even attract more of a hunter and sometimes a little peasant 'naïve and take him into the mountain. What mattered then was trying to see the "Huldre" from behind, because the back, which was similar to that of a cow, that just could not hide. It also happened that the trolls were able to "enchant" the beautiful shepherdess, bringing them and holding them captive in the mountain, and it happened that not many of them were able to go out from the mountain.
The little troll put up, of course, the jokes more incredible, they did go terribly angry old troll. It was then "keep on good terms" with trolls and the inhabitants of the underworld. He tried not to irritate them, because if not, you could take revenge by making him ill or dying cattle. If you could have a good relationship with them, the cows so they could do a lot of milk, get well-fleshed and well-being. It was for this reason that every year on Christmas Eve is often put in the barn a bowl of porridge, which was regularly eaten through.
