Image Description: Toy soldiers have long been a favorite plaything of children around the world, but their association with Christmas was made strong by the famous play by Tchaikovsky, The Nutcracker Prince. Since the inception of that stage story, toys of all kinds have become mascots of the Christmas season, and this extravagant setup shows off the best of the concept. Sitting in what looks like a midtown square, two toy soldiers appear to be guarding two Christmas trees, keeping their eyes and hands trained straight ahead at all times, just as a good guard should. Despite the morning hour, we see that many people are already out and about, enjoying the holiday flare.
