The Legend of the Nutcracker
According to German folklore, nutcrackers were given as keepsakes to bring good luck to your family and protect your home. The legend
says that a nutcracker represents power
and serves like a
trusty watchman guarding your family from evil spirits and danger.
A fierce protector, the nutcracker bares its teeth to the evil spirits and serves as the traditional messenger of good luck and goodwill.
We love Nutcrackers and so these gourds are a fun version of them. They are all about 8" tall and all very unique. They are gourds so they are dried and will last forever. Painted with acrylic paint and wood-burned all by hand. Each piece is signed and dated and one of a kind!
