Legends, folklore and belief systems of ancient earth spirits can be found in most countries and cultures worldwide. The humble garden gnome has a proud tradition stretching back into ancient European history. The Large Wise Gnome is the largest of the stainless-steel terminator gnome group and is again uncannily transforming this friendly mythical creature into something potentially dangerous and menacing.
