Poster with the painting He became more irritated and angry as time went on. John Bauer is the artist behind the painting that was published with Elsa Beskow's saga When the troll mother took care of the king's laundry in the fairy tale collection Among Gnomes and Trolls. In the picture we see a troll outside the gate to his home - the troll mountain. John Bauer is known for his fairy tale motifs with trolls and princesses and he has had a great influence on Swedish folklore and storytelling.
Trolls are a mythological creature from Norse mythology which, according to legend, originated from the giants of antiquity. The trolls usually live in mountains and have been described as everything from big and furry with long noses, ears and tails to being able to look like any human being. Although humans have sometimes had good exchanges with trolls as labor or advisors, they are seldom helpful and can be dangerous. According to Old Norse writings, the first trolls appeared in the Nordic countries during the Viking Age. Folktales that the forests and the inaccessible mountains were populated by evil beings fell into it for several hundred years. Laws were even enacted for trolls.

The Town - Poster
Ordered two John Bauer motifs and am so pleased. Plus for fast delivery.
Good customer service, fast delivery and incredibly nice products.
Will order again!
Again, great image and frame quality. Adorns its place. However, the boat is probably a Riva and not a Chris Craft. The port could be Alassio on the coast of Liguria.
Finally!!! Finally you find a page that is not afraid of Swedish History but appreciates it, approves of it and cherishes it! With fantastic motifs from our great proud multifaceted and in many and very brutal and harsh history! I can leave lots of good suggestions for this lovely site for more motifs that should be there! But...unfortunately, everything can't exist...or can it? =)
Super happy with the board and with the fast service!
Very satisfied, nice quality. Well packed and fast delivery!
