Trolls of Norway :)

Once in a while it is nice to receive cards with a surprise theme, like this one. Jörg (jhbr in the forums) sent it to me for Turkey X World RR, Group 25. Wikipedia says trolls are a member of a race of fearsome creatures from Norse mythology. Originally more or less the Nordic equivalents of giants, although often smaller in size, the different depictions have come to range from the fiendish giants to a devious, more human-like folk of the wilderness, living underground in hills, caves or mounds.

  2. Awesome, awesome, awesome!! I wish to receive one of those sometimes!

  3. Just checked the back of the card for you. The artist is Ivar Rodningen and there is a web address:
