PLEASE TAKE A BIT OF TIME TO VISIT OUR STORE & CHECK OUT OUR OTHER ITEMS! YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED! THEY ARE PART OF OUR 30+ YEAR COLLECTION OF WORKS FROM FAMOUS ARTISANS. This SPECTACULAR, ONE-OF-A-KIND Santa was created by former saddle maker, now textile artist, Kathy Jankiewicz in SantaFe, New Mexico. His face is made of a taupe colored rough-out leather, with hand-sewn nose, eyes, & eyelashes.
His hand-sewn red leather lips peek through a full lambs wool mustache & beard. His eyebrows & hair are also lambs wool, as is the hem of his robe. Santa's hooded robe is a "CHIEF JOSEPH" pattern Pendleton blanket as is the blanket that swathes the PORCELAIN-FACED papoose in his arms. His mittens are a hand-sewn, green, rough-out leather, & the yarn used to enclose the robe & at the cuffs & hem are hand-knotted. On his back he carries a green velvet toy sack containing a hobby horse whose beautifully detailed head is handsewn of the same.Taupe colored rough-out leather as Santa's face. His bridle is a gold trimmed, cranberry satin ribbon. Additionally, of special interest is a cranberry red leather covered original of "YOUR READER'S DIGEST MUSIC PROGRAM NOTES" of "THE BEETHOVEN TREASURY", 1981.
