Santa and His Reindeer

December 4th

Omar. There were many astrologers in the Middle East at the time of Jesus' birth. They watched the night sky for significant planetary alignments that they interpreted as foretelling certain earthly happenings. Ancient rulers and priests took seriously the wisdom relayed by the stars and were dependent on astrologers for advice. Omar has seen a new star and is trying to discern it's meaning and how history will be affected. He is uncertain whether to seek out the new "king" whose birth is heralded by this very bright star.

This is a handmade Santa and reindeer.

The details are amazing.

I would love to know the story behind this piece.

Teddy has her own Santa collection. This poor Santa suffers from "Shaken Santa Syndrome" induced by a Chow Chow with very big teeth!
