I just finished a Japanese Santa. It was a challenge to stretch the ordinary limits and do something different. I'd like to make around the world Santas! He has paper clay head and hands with cloth body. Glass brown eyes, which I think bring his face to life. He has a armature that allows him to carry the weight of a garland I made of felt, crammed with Japanese toys. He's on a wood painted and glossed base. He is about 27" high. My client sent me wonderful Japanese fabrics and toys.
