Mikolaj: Polish Santa

Mikolaj: Polish Santa. 20X30 Bohemian Tapestry Designed for The Polish Pottery Shoppe. The polish word Mikolaj actually interprets as Nicholas. He is traditionally a polish saint who delivered good things to children during the Christmas Holy Days. I have placed him in a rural setting among the forest creatures and making his way to all those out of the way homes where Polish children await him. The cardinals are his companions, as well as a red fox who has befriended him on his journey. The bag of toys tells the story. You can purchase this at The Polish Pottery Shop  You can see this on Off The Wall Fridays SOLD.
