Santa Claus and Snowman Christmas Decorations made from SeashellsPosted by Alla on Nov 24, 2010 in Blog | 1 comment
Santa Claus and Snowman are the two most popular and famous characters for Christmas season. I decided to create those character using nice wooden base, gar scale and seashells.
They are quite big: Santa clause is 18″ tall and Snowman is 20″ tall. Both figures have different exotic seashells as costume accessories.
All parts of their body are movable. They both are available from my boutique store.
They are unique and I made them with a lot of feelings. I hope they found their new home.
Happy Christmas or Poinsettia’s flowers
The star-shape red Poinsettia is flower which symbolize Christmas and whole winter holiday season. The history tells that Poinsettia’s flowers used even the ancient Aztec Indians.
The tribe prized the Poinsettia was a symbol of purity. Centuries later Dr. Joel Poinsett, the first US ambassador brought the flower and Mexico’s early Christians used Poinsettia as their prized Christmas Eve flower. The Mexican Poinsettia, known as the Christmas Flower in North America, is adopted in most Christmas decorations owing to its bright red and white color also its blooming time coinciding with the Christmas holiday season. Poinsettia is a favorite flower in the United States. In Central America it is called the “ Flame Leaf” or “ Flower of the Holy Night”. Most of the poinsettias used these days come from California.
This is an acrylic painting with oyster seashell mosaic. Size of the work is 17” x 21” x 2”.The inspiration of the work is upcoming Christmas holiday season. The work was made with a personally collected oyster seashells, also were used yellow Litorina seashells and four Tibia Curta spiral cut seashells.
