New Precious Moments Clipart
If you don't know them by name, you certainly know them by sight. They are the beautiful child characters with eyes like teardrops, who display the innocent nature of adolescence. Precious Moments artwork, which portrays those characters in various scenes and scenarios, has grown to become one of the most famed and beloved franchises on the planet. Its endearing characters, the family-friendly moral and non secular message, and warm-hearted imagery made Precious Moments a success worldwide .
Precious Moments commenced thirty years ago, when it was made by artist Sam Butcher. Initially, Butcher painted the characters for his buddies and family members, without ever expecting that the wonderful pictures would someday be so hugely famous. He went to school at the university of humanities & Crafts in Berkeley and improved his creative abilities.
Precious Moments' initial achievement happened at the conference of the Christian bookshops association in California. Butcher's art got a superbly warm reception, and his new connections with outlets began wide promotionof his artwork.
Butcher's big break came when Enesco Corporation offered to produce a line of three dimensional figurines based mostly on his sketched characters. At first only twenty-one figurines were released, but they received a fantastic reception and sold out all over the country first, and then the globe.
Nowadays there are more than 1,500 porcelain marionettes in the Precious Moments series, as well as Precious Moments artwork, Precious Moments clipart, books, and more. It actually is an international phenomonenon, recieving especially enthusiastic attention in the Catholic world, such as much of South America, due to Butcher's Christian faith and its plain impact on his art. However, not only Christian believers love Precious Moments. Families of any faiths can appreciate the moral values and purity voiced in gorgeous Precious Moments statuettes.
