Decorate with The Trail of Painted Ponies ornaments! Designers are featuring these miniature works of art on everything from drapery tie backs using satin ribbons to ceiling fan pulls! Gift-giving has become a new form of art by decorating packages with rope and ribbon and The Trail of Painted Ponies ornaments. This delightful Holiday Pony captures the story of the magic that is celebrated each Christmas. Three Wise Men, or Kings from the East, followed a brilliant star to Bethlehem, where they laid rare, precious gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh, for the baby Jesus. Many believe that these precious gifts may be the origin of the custom of gift giving at Christmas, which has become universal. "Gold, Frankincense and Myrrh" is a collaboration between one of the largest dealers of Painted Ponies in the state of Oklahoma, and her best-selling artist. For years, Kami Cain has been the owner/operator of Kokopelli Trails, an art gallery located in Guthrie, Oklahoma. Aloma Wolfington, a native Oklahoman well known for her detailed treatment of Native and Western themes, is a close friend and the creative force behind the figurine Rolling Thunder. Kami had been waiting for a holiday Pony to come along that featured a nativity scene, "because that's the reason I celebrate Christmas." And one day she could wait no longer. She approached her friend with a name, the concept and a rough sketch, and Aloma took it from there, bringing the idea to life with inspiring beauty.This Holiday Ornament comes in a beautiful, collectible holiday tin which measures: L 3½" x W 4½" x H 2". The resin ornament measures: L 2¾" x W ¾" x H 2½"
