Belsnickle Santa...s Primtive Folk Art Santas

2 Belsnickle Santas
I created 2 Belsnickle Santas last week. Both with 100% wool clothing that is hand dyed. Luscious feeling wool. The brown standing Santa is about 20 inches high, full lambs wool beard, naughty list, leather toy bag and a vintage type toy boat. I sculpted his head over a gourd so he is fairly light weight. His feet are hand sculpted black winter boots.

This Santa can be hung on the wall or sits on a ledge. All wool jacket and heavy cotton ticking pants. I have hand quilted his penny rug type pockets, he holds a stuffed Santa bag and has a primitive Christmas tree in his pocket. I hand made a miniature grape wreath with a "Silent Night" grungy label.
This holiday Santa is about 16 inches sitting and 26 inches tall hanging. His face is hand sculpted over a gourd to ad lightness to his total weight. Take a look at his sculpted boots with pin buttons and lace. Ho Ho Ho....
