Description

THE STORY: Aside from the faint tinkle of jingle bells and little whispered words of encouragement to his porcine friend, they travel in silence. Santa sits proudly on his stead and the little Pig looks up, shuffles a little and then begins to hustle, picking up each hoof as if a dancing stallion. The night is fast approaching and they have much to do. Toys to be delivered, trees to be decorated and children need to be made happy. Soon they will finish and make their way back to the barn where Mrs. Claus will be waiting with a big plate of cookies, and a platter full of carrots. Life is grand when you are a Christmas Pig.

HOW IT'S MADE: Father Christmas and his pig are made from a technique called needle felting, which involves poking and prodding different colours of wool with a extremely sharp barbed needle until you reach the perfect shape. It literally takes thousands of pokes and days and days to create a sculpture of this size. Father Christmas and his pig both have a wire armature to make them free standing and the pig has hand sculpted soft pink polymer clay hooves. They are firmly felted to each other to form a single soft sculpture.

MEASUREMENTS: Even though Father Christmas and his pig hardly weighs a thing, they are approx. 20.5 cm (8 inches) tall. They are cute to look at, and come from a smoke free home, but they are not a children's toy.

COLOUR: Father Christmas wearing a red coat, green vest, mixed brown pants and black boots. His beard and hair are an off white colour while the trim on his coat is bright what. The pig is flesh tone peach and has black glass eyes. Please remember different monitors may show colours slightly different then they actually are, but trust me, I've worked very hard in picking out just the right colours to bring these sculptures to life!

***Please note: Most, if not all, of my pictures are taken outside but these pieces are for indoor use only.

The Spring Green Man is beautiful, and is a lovely addition to my collection of seasonal green men, all created by McBride House. The arrival of Mr. Spring was perfectly timed!
