This hand painted Cypress Knee Santa has a red coat with gold trim. He is holding a staff.

This Santa measures about 11-3/4 inches high and 2-1/2 inches at its widest point at the base.

Bald Cypress Trees grow in the swamps in Southeastern U.S. As the trees mature, extensions of the root system grow above the water or ground line forming a very unique shape. These root formations are known as "knees." Just like snowflakes, every knee is different, no two are alike. Collectors value this trait, knowing that regardless of the number of knees in their particular collection, they will never have two exactly the same.

Harvesting these knees does not harm the tree and the tree soon forms another knee and continues to grow. The knees are boiled and the outer bark removed and after they dry out they are ready to paint. I study the knee and try to "Find the Santa" in each of them.

Thanks for shopping at Wood'n Knees!
