The Mino Garden Gnome Takes Care for Your Plants

The garden dwarf tradition is older than what is commonly believed. Originating in XVII century Germany, garden dwarfs were exported by an English nobleman to decorate his garden, and they have now become the globally widespread kitsch ornaments that we all know. Despite its jazzy colours, the modern dwarf is a melancholic figure, condemned to a purely decorative function within a domesticated and artificial environment. Mino on the other hand lives in a garden full of life, destined to survive for one season only to then die with pride by feeding the surrounding vegetation. 100% biodegradable, Italian design by Giovanni Tomasini.
