BELIEVE Mixed Media Gourd Santa

I believe in Santa Claus…
a symbol of the season of giving and love towards our fellow man.

This very whimsical gourd Santa holds a handpainted wood BELIEVE tag and star. The mixed media piece is created with a marenka gourd (with unique ridges in the body) to which air dry clay is handsculpted for his face, hair & beard, fur, boots and star. His skinny legs are wooden dowel rods and he is attached to a painted wooden base.

The piece measures 15” in height. Santa has a primitive/aged look as he is given a hand-rubbed antiquing technique; the star and tag are additionally aged with a crackle patina. The entire piece is dusted with old fashioned mica glitter here and there and finished with a matte sealer.

BELIEVE Santa is truly a one-of-a-kind piece that comes signed and dated.
