What do a Western Santa and Gnome have in common?

Tokyo is a city full of surprises. Every day I would encounter the most awkward scenes in the most unexpected places. Like this arrangement on a wall near an AC in a back alley. I was unable to read the sign on the back of this Santa, so I don't understand why he is wearing a cowboy hat while facing a wall.

The gnome doesn't care, or does he? He has been cemented to the wall, yet his little friend is missing. People in Japan seem to like statues in any form or shape. They decorate their gardens, sidewalks, and any available empty spot with creatures that make no sense being there in the first place...
