This lovely hand carved and hand painted Russian Santa Claus is painted in reds, whites, blues, and greens with a country scene on the front of his cloak. The scene is that of a monastery with its snow covered buildings and Russian Orthodox Churches with the traditional Onion Domes. Santa has a sweet expression on his face and us holding a decorated Christmas tree on his shoulders. The back of Santa's cloak is decorated with a simple but beautiful pattern. (SEE CLOSE UP PICTURES BELOW). This statue is lightly lacquered so it is easily cleaned and protected. The solid linden wood is dried for almost 2 years before it is carved. (Note: These are not molded or mass produced as are some molded resin Santas from China. All Russian Santas are hand carved from Linden Wood and each one is a unique piece!) This Grandfather Frost (as he is called in Russia) is made in Sergei Posad, Russia. This Santa is signed by the artist and measures just over 6.5 inches tall by 3.75 inches wide.
