Jim Shore’s hand-carved Heartwood Creek collectibles impart a sense of hope and nostalgia, embracing inspiring themes of family, tradition, spirituality, and patriotism. His Santas Around the World collection shines a light on holiday traditions of cultures near and far. The Christmas star figures largely in Poland, where Christmas Eve was traditionally not celebrated until the first star was seen in the night sky. In some sections of the country, children believed the Starman brought them gifts in place of Santa Claus. The eight-pointed star represented in Polish Santa symbolizes regeneration, as Jesus was named and circumcised when he was eight days old. This handcrafted stone resin ornament is finished with corn poppy details – the national flower of Poland – hand-painted in intricate detail.
