This lovely hand carved and hand painted Russian Santa Claus is painted in reds, purples, blues, greens, pinks, and golds with a country scene on the front of his cloak. The scene is that of a cold, icy stream meandering through the Siberian forest with snow covered trees along its banks and a golden sunset off in the distance. (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 approximately 6.75 inches tall by 3.5 inches wide.
