The reason I call this the Nisse Telemark tile is that hidden to a degree you will find an absolutely darling Nisse figure peering out of the design. It will bring a smile to all that find this along with other creatures that blend into the Telemark style of Rosemaling.
In the Hordaland district of Norway you will find the Os style of Rosemaling. You will see geometric and Telemark elements along with the older motifs represented on this attractive tile.
Another beautiful painting portraying the Trondelag style of Rosemaling is well represented on this tile by Gayle Oram. In the southern mountains of Trondelag, Norway there is a municipality called Oppdal and this is where this style of Rosemaling comes from.
