Dala horse is a traditional wooden horse statuette, carved and painted by hand. Originat­ing in Dalarna, a Swedish county, the Dala horse is said by some to be a model of Odin's horse Sleipnir, but unlike Sleipnir it does not have eight legs. The oldest know Dalahorse dates back to 1560. In the old days the Dala horse was mostly used as a toy for children; in modern times it has become a symbol of Dalarna, as well as Sweden in general.
