FAUNI-HISTORY IN PICTURES

The TROLL STORY started in 1952, and in our archives we have thousands of photographs and copies of hundreds of newspaper and magazine articles from all over the world,  covering the exciting and -at least to us- incredible events in our journey with the Trolls.

This page will keep changing as we add pictures - eventually this will be the whole fifty years of our Troll History in pictures and a few words. Right now we start with a collage of pictures of our FAUNI-trolls, handcrafted in Finland by our company ATELIER FAUNI, later called OY FAUNI LTD.
