From the Jim Shore Heartwood Creek Christmas Collection, Green Irish Santa. Made of stone resin. Measures 9.25" tall.
This Jim Shore Santa Claus figure wears a flowing robe decorated in shades of Christmas green, sculpted in raised relief and trimmed with gilded embroidery. Smoking his familiar pipe, Santa is surrounded by holiday delights including a bag of gifts and a pot of golden coins!
While working with Enesco Jim perfected his unique style, combining elements of folk art and a vibrant color pallet applied to traditional themes. To Jim a Santa Claus isn’t just a Santa Claus, it’s a canvas to be painted. Taking authentic designs from quilting, rosemaling, appliqué and flat perspective folk art, Jim creates an intricate and colorful work of art that reflects our shared cultural heritage yet is unmistakably Jim Shore. "I can’t imagine myself ever tiring of this," Jim says of his distinctive combination of themes and motifs, "I get to create two designs every time I develop a new piece – what the item will be and then what colors and patterns will go on it. The variety keeps me inspired."
Jim Shore's heartwarming Santa Claus figurines and Christmas angels make for delightful holiday home decor accent pieces and each is sure to become a treasured collectible for years to come!
