PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - A 10-foot tall, 3,000-pound gnome that now stands guard over a swimming pool at an apartment complex outside Beaverton may be the largest gnome in the state.

The Oregonian reports (https://isgd/TNMxft ) the all-white gnome was shipped by truck from Tucson, Arizona and made its debut Aug. 20.

The gnome, purchased for $12,500, fits well with the forested Cedar Hills Apartment complex, which has another more traditional gnome in its recreation center and a smaller one in its office.

The Cedar Hills gnome is big, but it’s still smaller than Iowa’s 15-foot-tall gnome, which is the tallest in the country.

The gnome is already becoming familiar with Portland residents. It has its own Instagram account in which a smaller version of him can be seen at different Portland sites.
