They call him Sinterklas in Indonesia but you may know the gentleman featured on this carved bone pendant bead as Santa Claus or Saint Nick.

The bearded face is shown in superb detail on this finely-carved piece, crafted on the Indonesian island of Bali.

It has a 2mm hole running left to right through the cap at the top of his head.

Natural bone worn against the skin will change colour over time, absorbing oils from your body and turning a golden colour.

BACK STORY
While Indonesia is the world's most populous Muslim nation state, it marks the religious festivals of other major religions with a public holiday.

That includes the Christian celebration of Christmas. In Bali, which is predominently Hindu, they go further and decorate hotels, resorts and retail shops in gorgeous Christmas decorations, often with amazing Balinese flair.

If you wanted to wish someone a Happy Christmas in Bahasa Indonesia, the language of Indonesia, you would say "Selamat Natal".

Santa Claus is know as Sinterklas, a name which harks back to Indonesia's history as a Dutch colony. The Dutch call the winter holiday figure Sinterklaas.

The snowman is shaping up to be an eight,
but not out of ten
The robots awake to find out they've been taped down
wondering when
They'll break through these chains, but
little boys have action toys for brains
I'm living proof it can last a long time
Now the girls up the street are innocent and sweet
well they're all in bed
They got their makeup and dreams, wonderland
sprinkled inside their heads
Soon they will change,
but tonight Hollywood has never seemed so strange
Their mother's praying it'll last a long time

I wanna roll around like a kid in the snow
I wanna relearn what I already know
Just let me take flight
dressed in red through the night on a great big sled
I wanna wish you Merry Christmas... HO HO HO!
