trollmaster - theodor kittelsen

Illustrations by Theodor Kittelsen (1857-1914)
I like trolls. But the giant ones, not the small ones. They look scary, but really they're not. In Norwegian folklore they are the shy, reclusive dwellers of the forest who only come out at night. If they forget their true nature and come out by day, then they turn to rock, and that is why there are large rocks with troll-like features, apparently.
