are clay figures made in Provence in the South of France. They represent traditional paysans (peasants) from the region. We carry beautiful Santons from master craftsman Claude Carbonel
. They are 11" tall and have fabric clothes. The details and finish are second to none. This particular Santon, Homme Pecheur avec Filet (fisherman with net), represents a man with a fishing net on his back with a basket of fish in one hand and a fish in the other. The picture shown is only representative of the style. Each Santon is unique and clothing and accessories can differ from the one pictured.For more information on the Santons de Provence, check out this France Today article.
