A folk art piece by Ewald Rentz wishing you Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. This hung in his barber shop at the Christmas season. A profile of Rentz can be found at www.folkartcanada.ca/Ont_ER.html His work is well known and forms part of many respected folk art collections. We have had this piece for over 15 years and it is time someone else enjoyed it.
The string you can see on the bottom right of the photo pulls a lever that makes Santa "bow" towards you as he extends his wishes.
