This magnificent Russian Santa Claus is hand carved and hand painted in watercolor with acrylic highlights by the artist to enhance details in the face, beard and costume. The scene depicts a couple of young children out in the snow. (See close up pictures below.) This Santa is very lightly lacquered so it is easily cleaned and protected. The solid linden wood is dried for almost 2 years before it is carved. Linden wood was once used to make drafting boards because it is so stable once properly dried. It does not warp, change shape, or crack and this artistic piece will bring enjoyment for a lifetime! (Note: These are not mass produced molded resin from China. All our 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 signed by the artist Victoria. This nice sized Santa measures approximately 8 inches tall by 4.25 inches wide.
