Combining a seasonal palette of jolly reds and greens with the artist's signature touches of purple, this Jim Shore Santa Table Figurine captures the magic of Christmas Eve. In his arms, Santa holds a miniature Santa in a miniature sleigh drawn by miniature reindeer, encapsulating the magic and wonder of the holiday season and appropriately titled "Christmas Miracles Are in Your Grasp." Shore's design uses intricate, carved details to conjure a jovial, traditional Santa Claus figurine. Santa's robes are accented with a quilt-like pattern that is a variation on the traditional Christmas Star block and pays homage to the folk art tradition from which Shore draws inspiration.
Inspired by nostalgia for his South Carolina upbringing and an abiding fascination with the intricate design of patchwork quilts, Jim Shore is a born storyteller. He sculpts an ever-expanding world of charming characters, whimsical animals and seasonal figurines that recall the rich, hand carved textures of traditional folk art to tell his heartwarming, down-home tales.
