May I present Gerald the Giraffe? This stylized wooden giraffe is a gift from Santa AmberRose! He’s a delightful fellow. Body is finished in light brown enamel paint, with darker brown accents, cream color hooves, and yellow enameled eyes. This ‘antennae’ are wooden orbs. I used Gerald on my Christmas tea table (photo one), and in my nativity ensemble on my mantel. Gerald was there pinch-hitting for the camel. THANK YOU VERY MUCH, AMBERROSE!!!!! : )

I didn't see a category for wooden animals, so my secondary listing identifies him as "animal folk art".

    Well Gerald is a versatile actor, a camel wouldn't be a stretch. Love the scarf, perfect winter addition. Too cute!

    Why is Santa carrying the head of an elf? It is cracking me up!

    AmberRose, Tomte is carrying a pixie/elf/brownie head from a figural pixie that adorned a ceramic dish my grandparents had. The dish and pixie body shattered, but I loved the pixie and saved the head. When I couldn't find a candle small enough to fit the Tomte before Christmas, I used the elf head to cover the hole. You would have loved the pixie dish! Here's one very similar - sans leaf:
