The Nutcracker was first developed around 1870 and is nowadays one of the most famous representatives of the Erzgebirge (Ore Mountains). Often the Nutcracker is the image of authorities from the past. Especially kings, soldiers and gendarmes are often used as a model. At that time the population was dependent on the benevolence of the authorities and tried to express some protest by giving the Nutcrackers a grim look. His energetic face makes him look very powerful.
