50th Anniversary Troll

50th Anniversary Troll

 

Ken Arensbak made the original troll for his children in 1959 to help make his stories come to life.

He first unbraided strands of jute rope and glued it to a wooden base, then added the details which included natural materials found in the nearby woods.

To help celebrate its 50th anniversary, we are making this 1/3 scale reproduction of that original troll (pictured on right).

The trolls will be made by Marianna (Ken's daughter) and will be the first trolls she has made since the late 1970's.

This is a Limited Edition of only 250 pieces and will be signed (by Neta Arensbak) and numbered with a special tag on bottom of base.
