This fun GNOME LIKE Russian hand carved Santa Claus is hand carved and hand painted in blues, whites and golds by the artist to enhance details in the face, beard and costume and the very tall cap he is wearing. Notice the ornate gold design on the back of his cloak and the red, bronze and white accents on the back and along the edge of his cloak! Santa is holding a bag by his side which is painted with a feather or palm branch looking design and his arms are pulled up and he is leaning a little to his right as if he is just chuckling away! This Santa 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 mass produced molded resin from China. All Russian Santas are hand carved from Linden Wood) 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 under 9.25 inches tall by 4 inches wide.
