Santa’s New Toy by Stanley Wanlass (b. 1941), 85/88
An emeritus professor of the American Academy of Art in Paris, Stanley Wanlass (b. 1941) is a world-renown sculptor known for his national monuments — including the Lewis & Clark sculptures at the mouth of the Columbia River — and his many imaginative automotive sculptures. Here Santa Clause sits, examining his list of names, among all kinds of toys, all stuffed in an imagined 1920s car with a gilt reindeer as the hood ornament.
