The night sky is clear, and the fir trees are tipped with stars. To the vast hush there comes a sound: the crunch of boot on snow crust. Saint Nicholas himself, staff in hand, suddenly appears in robes of velvet and fur, twinkle-eyed and open-hearted, just as we remember him from childhood.

In this gallery, you will find only the finest and most exuberantly hand carved Old World Santas from a New World craftsman. Step inside. Step back in time. Be transported to a workshop Santa himself would admire.
