Henning Norwegian Wood Carving
Norway's rich folk history comes to life at the workshop and store of the revered Henning family. Located in the rolling hills just outside of the town of Lena and overlooking the western bank of Mjøsa, the Henning family workshop has drawn people from both inside and out of Norway's borders since 1947. Though small (the shop itself is located in a small timber house dating back to 17th century), fans of woodwork can easily whittle away the better part of an hour checking out the handcrafted items on display on Henning's shelves. After a unique gift? All items are on sale, of course, From ancient Norse Deities (including Odin, the all-seeing, Freya, Thor and Loki) to delicate Norse nativity scenes and, of course, trolls of both genders. The rolling hills surrounding the shop are filled with bucolic farmland, farmhouses and a church dating back to the 11th century. Though a bit off the beaten path, Henning's shop is worth the trip.
