The gnome made its debut in the work of the 16th century Swiss alchemist Paracelsus. According to him, gnomes are earth elementals that can move through the ground as easily as humans move through air. If you've never seen one, it's because they're very shy around humans. Paracelsus was serious. Other writers who embellished on gnomes in the 18th and 19th centuries lumped them in with dwarves, fairies and elves. The first lawn statues of gnomes appeared around this time. Gnomes flourished in contemporary fantasy novels ranging from Oz to Tolkien to Harry Potter. Plastic garden gnomes based on the Disney model and mass-produced in the 1960s more or less standardized our current idea of gnomes. It's less clear how gnomes came to be associated with mushrooms; one source says that gnomes carry magic mushroom spores that help them add colors to nature. Another story says that psilocybin mushrooms enable people to see gnomes, which is no doubt possible. Some versions have gnomes living in mushrooms. However it got started, gnomes and mushrooms are often represented together.
