The elk leaves the mother womb after a period of 8 months and then develops into a cute little animal 2.30 m high at the shoulder, 3 m long and 800 kg in weight. Perhaps the elk shovels remind us of angel wings to enable him to move into our Christmas home.
The Hennig Company, located in Deutschneudorf, was founded more than 85 years ago and for more than 50 years has manufactured folk art items.
As early as 1952, the then 22-year-old son-in-law Günter Hennig introduced the range of Erzgebirge folk art items and specialized in figurative miniatures. His immense interest in his homeland, in local history and in artistic creation and through his dedication and commitment the museum in Deutschneudorf was brought into being and is now furnished with rare evidence of the past.
