Gnomes The Strange

Gnomes are the product of old European myth.  They are members of the "little people" category which include elves, orcs, goblins, and fairies.  Gnomes are said to be the most human looking of all the little people with a height about one half that of human beings, and often wearing beards.   Like elves, goblins and orcs, gnomes are miners of jewels and precious metals.  gnomes are reputed to be the most friendly, light hearted creatures of all the races of little people.  Some descriptions of gnomes portray them as ill tempered creatures.  This is not true for the majority of literature regarding gnomes.

Gnome figurines are very popular collectors items, they are found all over the world.
