Mountain Trolls

Mountain Trolls are part of Scandinavian legends, but looking at “Troll Sightings” you will notice their Mountain Trolls are often huge! These are not the “fit under your kitchen chair” variety of beings. They are more in line with Bigfoot or Sasquatch sightings.  Though human like in some ways, their distorted features and plant or rocklike qualities make them curiously appealing.

The paintings above have storylike quality to them and are painted by Swedish artist John Bauer.  Note the large noses, small eyes, large feet and hands and how they blend with their surroundings.  They seem humanlike but more a part of the forest.

Norwegians proudly display their belief and love of trolls.  Not quite as large as the real troll documented by RECON pilots during WWII, these are popping up in prime tourist locations due to their popularity.

More and  more trolls are  mingling with humans, albeit in the form of statues.  They’ve even made it overseas to America and taken residence under bridges in Seattle.   Forget the negative internet trolling and get out to do some trolling for fun.

You can come be part of Newfoundland’s very own upcoming Mountain Troll Festival in July 2018.  Enter our fun contest where YOU decide what a MOUNTAIN TROLL looks like, or perhaps you dabble in costumery and would like to enter that part of the contest.  We’ll be needing models too, for the MOUNTAIN TROLL STROLL.
