I was afforded the opportunity this year to resculpt the iconic Farmers/Whitcoulls Santa's face, in an attempt to give him a more cheery and welcoming expression. The transformation included the well known "dodgey winking eye" being removed, and replaced with a fixed, non winking one. Fortunately, I was able to salvage the original eye from a destiny with the rubbish dump, and am now proud to offer it to anyone keen to own a piece of Aucklands heritage.
As most Aucklanders know, Santa has been a part of the festive season in Auckland for close to 50 years. There has been generations of us who have grown up with him winking at us every Christmas. He is remembered most for his somewhat seedy wink, and his beckoning finger. Sadly, those features have now been removed, destined to slip into the history books. This is a last chance opportunity to retain a piece of that history before it is lost for good. It's because of this that I have chosen to put the eye up for auction, because I'm sure there are many aucklanders who will share fond memories of santa, and may wish to own a key feature of his original face. I did intend to keep the eye as a momento of the work I did, so if it does sell, I hope it sells to somebody who really wants it and will appreciate it. I intend to give a percentage of the winning bid to a charity.

If required, a letter of authenticity can be provided to the winning bidder.

Thanks for viewing, Merry Christmas and happy bidding!
