Co-Boy comes from the small village of Coburg, Germany. The fictional story is that the Coburg residents forgot how to laugh. One day a resident came up with a bright idea to fix the problem by resurrecting a long forgotten world of gnomes who lived in the area. They are beautifully crafted and painted and each figurine represents a town resident or profession.
