A Real Live Gnome in Pennsylvania?

“I have a cabin north of Pittsburgh in the mountains of Western Pennsylvania ... I have a game camera set up in the woods to capture images of the abundant wildlife in the area. Three weeks ago, I discovered a series of three images of a creature that I have NEVER seen before.”

- Keith Sniadach, Writer, Pittsburgh, PA

“Gnome:  A legendary dwarfish creature supposed
to guard the Earth's treasures underground.”

German garden gnomes (above) usually have bushy eyebrows, a long beard and conical hat, often reddish in color.

August 23, 2014  Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania - In 1200 A.D., a Swedish man named Frederik Ugarph found a hard wood statue only about six inches (15 cm) high of a little person wearing a conical hat in what is now Trondheim, Norway. The statue was standing on a pedestal engraved with the words:  “NISSE Riktig Storrelse.” That means, “Gnome, actual height.” Owned and housed today by the Oliv family in Uppsala, Norway, X-ray tests indicate the wooden statue is more than 2,000 years old, perhaps carved from a tree that is no longer known.
