Iconic piece of art to hang in your home for the holidays – or year round! Professionally framed. approx. 25″ x 25″
The “Spirit of Christmas” print was originally developed by John Mahnic to be a Christmas print that people could hang in their homes year round. The character in Santa’s face, combined with the children hidden throughout the beard, have made this one of the best-selling Canadian prints of all time. The girl that is being handed the flowers to is John’s daughter, Tiffany. Near the bottom of the print, a girl has her elbows on a child’s head, who happens to be John’s son, Michael. The child wearing the glasses and looking over the rims is supposed to be Santa as a child.
Currently, John is teaching art at a high school in Guelph, Ontario, inspiring students to reach out and achieve their dreams.
