Father Christmas and his Follower

Title

Father Christmas and his Follower

Description

Father Christmas hunches underneath some branches while trudging through the snow. His coat is purple with spots and brown trim, tied at the waste with a bundle of branches stuck through it. On his back is a bag with a drum and a doll sticking out of it. One hand is set behind his back and the other holds a walking stick. Behind a large tree trunk that Father Christmas has already walked past is a young child in green clothing and an orange hat watching. The tree branches are snow-covered, as is the ground, though patches of grass peek out. At the bottom reads, "All good Wishes for Christmas."
