This little guy is one of many in the workshop that seems to do-it-all from painting toys to boxing and wrapping them with a flourish of ribbons and bows. Here he paints a toy train engine but an unpainted teapot awaits his attention. Yet to be wrapped is a plush teddy bear, a book, and a drum with drumsticks. There is a mixture of contrasting textures such as the smooth golden beribboned bell by his elbow, the roughness of the wood bench and plank floor. It's cold up there at the North Pole, so our hard worker is keeping warm in shoes, dual pocketed blue overalls made of fabric with golden stars, a buttoned up striped shirt and a very thick green knit hat with fuffy pompom and a sprig of holly. A wide palette of colors are used to highlight the well-modelled details which makes this a delight to examine from every side. Includes furniture protectors. Resin, imported. Collected prior to 2006.
