A fantastic Black Santa Claus carving made from cypress. Wonderful eyes. Tall, unique, masterfully designed Santa carving and full of character. It is difficult to tell from the photographs how large pieces really are in comparison with most Santa carvings. Though very lightweight as cypress roots inherently are - these Santas are quite tall. Be certain to take note of their dimension. Cypress grows predominantly in the south and most often in or around swamps. The knees are a structure of the root and are generally protruding vertically, above the water line. Once the bark is removed and the knee is boiled and dried it is ready to carve - lucky for us - into a Santa Claus. Since no two pieces of this wood are ever alike the designs are all uniquely original. Signed and dated.
