Ole Shuteye


My attempt at Ole Lukøje (Which translates to "Ole Shuteye" or "Ole Eye Closer"), also known as Jon Blund in Norway and Sweden.

He is the Nordic and German version of the Sandman, a creature said to put children to sleep by sprinkling magic sand in their eyes so they have to close them. Ole is a bit different in that he carries an umbrella (sometimes two) which he folds out after putting the children to sleep, and it cause the children to dream.

He sometimes have a darker side to him as well. He is also connected with death, and occasionally he puts someone to sleep forever, meaning he is responsible for people who die in their sleep.

Think I'm going to study up on this version of the Sandman for sure. So that when I have kids, this is the version I'm gonna teach em, lol. This version sounds much better than the crappy half fairy that is in American culture.

@ Dakaria

I´ve seen him sometimes on television, when I was smaller!

I remember when I was little, I knew a story about a sort of sandman who had an umbrella for good kids, that made them dream good dreams, and one for bad kids, which gave them nightmares. It might have been Hans Christian Andersen, I don't quite remember.

Pretty cool, the abstract effect the posistion of the umbrella has. Really does look like something one might glimpse before drifting off.
