Rosendahl Santa by Kay Bojesen. Kay Bojesen’s wooden figurines are famous all over the world for their unique combination of playfulness and design. His naivistic designs are free from superfluous shapes, but with plenty of heart and humour in the craftsmanship, and Santa is no exception.
With his grey beard and plump belly, “Santa Kay” peeks out from under his red hat with a cheerful sparkle in his eye, while his hands grasp a walking stick and a bag of toys for all the nice little boys and girls, and maybe even their naughty friends...
The bag is a modern addition to Kay Bojesen’s original design, which can be filled with Christmas treats or little gifts as part of the holiday decorations. Or it can hold an extra present for the recipient of the Santa, because everyone knows that good things often come in small packages.
Made of painted beech.
