Richard Glässer Christmas Nutcracker - Scotsman with Bagpipes
A cultural mash-up! The traditional woodcraft of Germany's Erzgebirge region dressed up in a Scotsman's real tartan fabric kilt, gater flashes, Ghillie brogues and sporran (the small pouch). And of course his bagpipes!
Each Nutcracker from the Richard Glässer studios in Seiffen Germany is handcrafted and hand painted. I got to visit their workspace last summer and see the artisans in action.
