Barbegazi's Glacial Playground

80 x 60 cm

Barbegazi find playing in the snow and surfing avalanches irresistible. They are gnome-like beings from Swiss mythology, with an appearance somewhere between a gnome and an Abominable Snowman. They live and play in the Alps between France and Switzerland, frolicking on the snowy mountain peaks during the coldest months of winter.

Their most notable feature is their massive feet, which they use like snowshoes or skis. Consequently travel through deep snow, is not only easy, but a lot of fun. One of their greatest pleasures is surfing avalanches, which they sometimes start for the thrill of the ride.
