12 Day Delivery Santa Claus’ is a One of a Kind handmade figure which stands a lovely 15 inches tall (taller than most gourds) and is perfectly balanced on his 11” by 5 ½” base. He and his base have been cut from ¾“ thick forest managed pine.
Santa is dressed in a rich, fur trimmed, deep, royal purple robe. Santa is surrounded by the gifts from the Christmas Carol “The 12 Days of Christmas”. Hiding in his pockets are the ‘three French hens’, two of the geese a’ laying, and a lord, as well as, one of the drums. 2 turtle doves sit upon his shoulder whispering secrets of children into Santa’s ear. A gold leafed decorated tree filled with lords, ladies, pears, greenery, 5 gold rings, pipes, 4 calling birds, and gold spangle stars has been carefully detailed into the picture. The top of the ‘pear tree’ contains the ever so important partridge holding a tiny pear! Even the back of the piece has been painted with remarkable detail (see the picture!).
His base is decorated with a harlequin design in black and shimmering pearl blue/green. The pattern is detailed in with gold glitter. Two curious geese are attached to the base, along with a white swan and a glittering jingle bell.
Finally Santa and his base have been finished with varnished to protect him for generations of Christmas Celebrations.
Leave this beautiful Santa out for all of Winter- he is a classic!
Santa Claus, Father Christmas, St. Nicholas, St. Nick, Father Frost, a thousand names for one loving soul. No matter what he looks like, or what language he speaks we, as the people of the world, know what he is- the best of mankind. All the Joy, Happiness, Love, Kindness, Giving, Benevolence, Humanity, and Compassion are embodied in Santa. He appears slightly different in each person’s mind- so every way we see him is just perfect and this Hand cut and delicately hand painted Santa is no different.
Because this Santa has been handmade and hand painted he is truly OOAK (one of a kind). I loved painting him and I would never be able to reproduce his warmth again.
If you would like a OOAK Santa specific in color or style please contact me- it takes almost 2 weeks of work to get one of these figures perfect (I even cut him out of the wood)!
