Jim Shore has partnered with FAO Swartz to create a gift collection combining the nostalgia and tradition of FAO with Jim's detailed art motifs. Riding atop a marvelously crafted steam engine, Santa waves merrily. Each inch of the magnificent train boasts with detail and color. Meticulous patterns, toys and piano keys paint this piece with elegance. The FAO Schwarz Santa Riding Train Explore A World Of Wonder by Jim Shore Statue is made of resin. Measures about 8 1/4-inches long x 7 3/5-inches tall x 3-inches wide.
