This lovely little hand carved and hand painted Russian Santa Claus is painted in blues with white snowflakes. The scene on the front of his cloak is that of the Nativity - the Holy Family consisting of Baby Jesus in his straw laden manger, His mother Mary, and father Joseph. The scene on the back is of a pair of angels - one blowing a trumpet and another playing a violin heralding the Savior's birth. 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 6.25 inches tall by just over 3.75 inches wide.
