This is a hand painted Santa Claus gourd, home grown, painted, signed and dated by me, the artist. He is a one of a kind folk art primitive type Christmas home decor. It is a large gourd measuring 11" tall by 25-1/2" around. He is hand painted with brightly colored acrylic paints and sealed with several coats of glossy waterproof coating to protect the painting. This gourd has it's seeds still inside. It will last for many years for your Christmas home decor when taken care of. It is best displayed on the porch or in the home with cover from rain and sun to keep it looking new. This Santa has a red silk ribbon tied on top of the stem and hangs with a wire mounted hanger, ready to hang. If you have any questions just message me and I'll be happy to help you. Thank you for looking at my cute Santa gourd.
