Renowned artist, Pipka, continues her "World of Santas" collection with this striking depiction of Zimbabwe's Father Christmas. He wears a lightweight red suit, sandals, and carries a pack of goodies representing Zimbabwe's beauty and culture - including exotic animals.
Zimbabwe Father Christmas wears the typical red suit, but it's made of light material because Christmas, "Kisimusi," is celebrated in Zimbabwe in the summer. Sandals adorn Santa's feet, reminding him of hot, yet beautiful landscape of Zimbabwe, which boasts the majestic Victoria Falls and magnificent wildlife preserves. Animals in his bag represent these wild animals. A favorite activity at Christmas time is to get a ride in Father Christmas's donkey-pulled cart. Balloons, ribbons and tied cans decorate the cart and make for merry clatter. Children receive juice and candy from Father Christmas.
Great for Christmas home decor and Christmas gift giving.
