Historical figurines represent a connection to our past and a commitment to the memory of what has gone before. A collection that includes historical figurines has a depth that other collections simply cannot match. Whether you choose to remember explorers or leaders or entertainers, the memory of a person who contributed to society is priceless.

Christmas is a time when it is appropriate to reflect on our past and look forward to our future. All God's Children, the popular maker of figurines that include important historical personages, offers a way to honor the important African American heroes of the past. Let their representations of Frederick Douglass and Edmonia Lewis inspire you to strive for compassion and friendship each and every holiday season.

Unique Historical Figurines

In addition to capturing a snapshot of the past, these figurines are a way of rejuvenating interest in the past. Manufacturers often include a historical note or short essay on the personage represented. These collectibles make history come alive before your eyes and are great gifts for school-aged children.

Some unique representations from the past include: Henry VIII and his six wives, Elvis Presley, and King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table. Historic depictions of Father Christmas (the precursor to Santa Claus) are a popular yuletide choice. Whether your choice is traditionally associated with the holiday season or not, including a piece of history in your Christmas collection can only enrich its quality and depth.
