Two of the holiday season's most beloved icons come together in this whimsical scene of a Jim Shore Santa Figurine Building a Snowman, entitled "Share the Spirit." Santa, in signature red with green sash and patterned detailing, reaches up to place a top hat on his snowman, before adding a broom for the final touch. The snowman features traditional carrot nose and colorful patterning, which is Jim Shore's version of a Pennsylvania German folk art style called "fraktur." The figurine's attention to detail, jolly color palette and hand carved look create a scene that radiates benevolent energy and the spirit of the season. A festive tabletop, desktop or console accent that will add holiday cheer to indoor spaces year after year.
Growing up in rural South Carolina, Jim Shore's grandmother was a master quilter. She taught him to appreciate the patience and skill required to bring intricate designs to life. Drawing inspiration from his upbringing, Jim Shore is a born storyteller. Receiving a degree in business, not art, Jim originally supported his young family as an engineer and honed his skills as a painter and sculptor in his spare time. Now Jim continues to sculpt an ever-expanding world of charming characters. His whimsical animals and seasonal figurines recall the rich, hand carved textures of traditional folk art and tell his heartwarming, down-home tales.
