This sweet, Gnome-like Russian Santa Claus is hand carved and hand painted in reds, golds, and whites creating this fun little statuette. This Santa is holding an accordion and is ready to get the party started with his seasonal Russian folk songs! Santa has a tall cap and has sturdy black boots in preparation for the cold, Siberian winters! Santa's cap and cloak are highlighted with gold strips; gold, bronze and silver paint; as well as silver glitter causing it to reflect the light. (SEE CLOSE UP PICTURES BELOW.) This statuette 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! (Note: These are not molded or mass produced as are some molded resin Santas from China. All our 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 just over 9.5 inches tall by 2.75 inches wide.
