Father Christmas in City

Title

Father Christmas in City

Description

A short Father Christmas is wearing a orange-brown robe, red hat, and carrying a satchel and bag as well as a walking stick. The viewer sees him through an scalloped archway of a building surrounded by evergreen. He appears to be walking through an upper-level street of a city; behind him are brown houses and a church with more buildings in the background. The moon and stars are partially obscured by a mixture of differently shaded gray clouds. "A merry Christmas" is printed below Father Christmas' feet.
