Product Description

This lovely, hand carved and hand painted Russian Santa Claus or Grandfather Frost, as he is called in Russia, is painted in the Golden Uzor Style with a unique combination of reds, whites, and gold paints. The artist, T. Makarova, highlights Santa’s cloak with gold paint giving texture and a very ornate pattern. This Santa has a lovely high collared cloak and a bright blue bag with a golden snowflake painted on it. This Santa 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! (Please 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 no two are ever identical!) This Grandfather Frost is made in Sergei Posad, Russia, initialed by the artist and measures approximately 7.5 inches tall by 3.25 inches wide. 

THIS SANTA IS NUMBERED 1 OUT OF 20!

GOLDEN UZOR PAINTING

This Santa has a special rare type of painting called “Golden Uzor.” Tatyana Makarova, the painter, painstakingly and carefully layers the paint a number of times in order to achieve the thick, raised, golden effect in Uzor painting. It may be difficult to see in the pictures, but it creates a unique look and feel in person. Currently we know of only two painters who are painting the traditional Uzor style on their hand crafted Santas. Tatyana Makarova is one of them. Her Santas are stunning!
