Santa and West Highland Terrier
SOLD- Thank you Stephanie in Minnesota
"Santa and Westie"
Santa is a one of a kind Original Gourd character created by me Penny Grotz Streit. Santa is painted on a thick shelled gourd. He is painted as a visual story. Santa holds a basket with his best friend a West Highland Terrier named Snowball. Santa holds a doll and Christmas wreath in his hands. There is a Christmas tree and presents painted on his back. I placed some paper mache at the top of his hat for a ball. This protects the stem of the gourd which was left exposed to remind the viewer of his earthly beginnings.
This guy would look so sweet sitting on a sideboard, mantel or table in a Christmas vignette. Santa has been painted in rich hues using various painting techniques to bring out depth and eye catching features. He is sure to become a family heirloom.
He Measures 8 3/4" tall by 7" across.
If your interested in purchasing Santa or just looking at some more pictures, you can check him out on MY ETSY
GOURD TRIVIA- Gourds are highly durable. There are some in existence that are hundreds of thousands years old.
