Saint Nicolas and his friend Zwarte Piet are wery popular in Belgium (also in the Netherlands).
They are coming during the night to give toys to the all children who discovered them when waking up on December 6.
Saint Nicolas is a very very old man and Piet is going trough the chimney to bring the toys, therefore ihe is “zwart” on his face. This very old legend is part of our culture.
No discrimination … maybe you heard about ONU question …
Just very wonderfull memories when I was a child and also as a mother preparing this fest when my son was still a little boy …
Therefore I made those 2 people in wood, my tribute to their legend (20 cm high, in MDF, painted).
I hope you will love them !
