This delightful Russian Santa Claus is hand carved and hand painted by the artist creating this beautiful decoration painted in reds, blues, golds, and greens. Santa's cloak is decorated with snowflakes, berries and leaves, as well as whorls and curly-cues. This statue is lacquered so it is easily cleaned and protected. The solid linden wood is dried for almost 2 years before it is carved so it will last a lifetime. Linden wood was once used to make drafting boards because it is so stable once it is properly dried. It does not warp, change shape, or crack and this artistic piece will bring enjoyment for a lifetime! (Please 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 no two are ever identical!) This Grandfather Frost, as he is called in Russia, is made in Sergei Posad, Russia and is signed by the artist. The Santa measures approximately 6.5 inches tall by 3.5 inches wide.
