Swedish Father Christmas
At Christmas time in Sweden, while families ride to church in sleighs, passing glowing candles in windows which light the snowy fields, the Swedish Santa makes his arrival. He brings candles, gingerbread, a Dala horse and little packages filled with toys to place under the Christmas tree. He has not forgotten the little birds perched on the sheaf of grain and by his feet and gives his feathered friends a few extra kernels of corn before going on his way.
The Swedish Santa is part of the Pipka Gallery Collection. He is 11 inches tall, made of cold cast resin and hand painted. The detail on the Swedish Santa is exquisite and represents many of the Swedish Christmas customs.
