I carve the original of every piece in clay, make my own molds, and cast the statues by hand in our workshop in Mississippi; my wife then paints and glazes each statue. Every statue comes individually boxed, can go outside, and can stand or hang (there’s a hook on the back). This piece comes with a card stating the following:

Nicholas was a fourth-century bishop in Myra, a city in what is now Turkey. In this image, Nicholas holds three bags of gold in one hand and a cup in the other. Both symbols refer to stories in which a gift from Nicholas changes young people’s lives from hardship to joy. In one story, Nicholas throws three bags of gold through a window into a house where a poor man lives with his three daughters, all of whom are too poor to have a dowry and therefore be ready for marriage. The gift from Nicholas allows the three girls to be wed and live happily with their husbands. It is for this reason that Nicholas is the patron of newlyweds and weddings. The cup evokes a story in which the saint helps a child. Because of other stories about him, Nicholas is also the patron of fishermen and sailors. This image of Nicholas was handmade by Hank Schlau.
