At right is one of our favorite items in the collection. This large figure is by Maruri of Italy, and one of several in their series "Santa's World Travels" in which Santa is paired with various items and animals. This is the only elephant figure.

Below you see it bringing up the rear in our annual buffet top tableau of elephant figures parading toward the creche. Even elephants long to see Jesus.
