This quaint little hand painted Russian Santa Claus is painted in greens and golds with white edging. The gold paint reflects the light causing this Santa's cloak to shimmer in the light. Santa is holding a staff with as well as a bag with a patch holding it together. He is beautifully hand carved and hand painted by the artist to enhance details in the face, beard and costume. (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. (Note: These are not mass produced molded resin from China. All Russian Santas are one of a kind unique and hand carved from Linden Wood so no two Santas are ever identical.) This Grandfather Frost, as he is called in Russia, is made in Sergei Posad, Russia and is initialed by the artist. This nicely sized Santa measures approximately 6.75 inches tall by 3 inches wide.
