Large Santa holding Dove of Peace
This is a one of a kind Large Santa holding the Dove of Peace sculpture. He has his right hand out with a Dove with spread wings sitting on his glove. His bag of toys has a ribbon that is three dimensional out from the bag (made of tin). The Santa sculpture and base is carved from one piece of wood and the bird and ribbon were added. His beard and hair is carved and notched along with his hat, coat, shoes and bag.
Santa is hand painted using red, white, cream, green, black and ochre. The bag is painted brown and the base is painted green with snow flakes and brush design. The dove is painted white with black eyes.
I don’t carve many of these Santa’s because of the time it takes to complete them. It is signed and dated on underside of base and includes the phrase “The white dove of peace lands on Santa’s hand”.
