Aussie Santa & Boomer


Years ago I traveled to Australia, teaching folk art to students around the country. My hosts generously shared Australia’s Christmas customs with me and took me to places where I could see kangaroos, cockatoos and koala bears. It was interesting to learn that, in Australia, Santa is accompanied by kangaroos, called Boomers. There’s not a reindeer in sight. Christmas is celebrated with beach parties and food is cooked on the barbie, the Australian slang for barbeque.
Australia, this “down under” country, south of the border, is unique with it’s diverse animals and foods but the true meaning of Christmas is evident in their celebrations. I was filled with inspiration and memories which prompted me to design this beautiful Australian Santa.

The Australian Santa is 11 inches tall, part of the Pipka Memories Collection, mad of cold cast resin and hand painted.
