The Dala horse has been adopted from the northern Swedish province of Dalarna, where it has been carved, idolized, adored, and adorned for several centuries. The early Norsemen considered the horse a holy animal and carved many likenesses of him.
Miniatures were made to carry on a person as an icon – to ward off evil. Eventually this good luck symbol, in its diminutive form, became a toy as well.
