It was in 2006 that Ottmar Hörl finalized the current design of the Sponti gnome.
" Unlike all other garden gnomes, Hörl's gnomes are distinguished by their reduction to the essentials. Characteristic elements such as beard, jacket, trousers and shoes are deliberately rendered in a clean shape. This gives to the figures a fresh look. This is both timeless and universal at the same time. In fact, the Hörl gnomes are the formal essence of the garden gnome as such. A difference becomes evident when comparing the gnomes ( Sponti) created in 1994 with those of 2006. By developing his own models for the Gnomes, Ottmar Hörl managed to capture the essence of the garden gnome as an iconic archetype in cultural history. It is therefore not surprising that the characters have reached cult status."
