German homes traditionally display nutcrackers in their homes for practical purposes. As the name suggests, it’s used to crack open hard nuts. They may come in different designs but the most famous one is the soldier version.
This is probably because of the famous Christmas story and ballet, “The Nutcracker.” The two-act ballet reimagines the story by German writer E.T.A. Hoffman of a Nutcracker waking up on Christmas Eve together with other toys to defeat the evil Mouse King.
While the nutcracker is widely known as a brave soldier, there are other types. This 6.5-foot nutcracker statue is holding a sceptre and wearing a crown to depict his position and power amongst other soldiers. This fiberglass life-sized statue is definitely not a normal nutcracker foot soldier.
Other larger-than-life nutcrackers in this collection come in different sizes, versions, and props.
