Yet More Tasteless Garden Statuary

Photos of shocking garden statuary continue to pour into the Homegrown Evolution in-box. Anne Magnér sent these amazing photos all the way from Denmark. The crass garden gnome, apparently, cuts across all European cultures from north to south.

I wonder what’s up with the confident and smiling Danish woman statues to the right of the kids. Wouldn’t mind one of these for our garden. But I wonder what she would think of the gnomes that follow after the jump. Warning: very NSFW!

Look out!

I’ve noticed regional differences in European garden gnomes, but I’ve never seen the flashing Danish ones. Thanks Anne!

  1. This is so funny I am loving all of the photo’s ! A friend of ours was in Eastern Europe this past summer and saw shops filled with all kinds of gnomes. When she asked the shop keepers what was up with the gnomes the shop keeper told her they stock them because the Asian tourists love them and buy them up like mad. LOL! One man’s junk is another man’s souvenir.

  2. The funny thing is that I have never seen the gnomes in a garden near the store….In fact, they are rare to see. Think that they are ment for german tourist!
