This lovely Russian Santa Claus is hand carved and hand painted in reds, whites and golds, with white, gold and silver accents. The artist has decorated this Santa's cloak and pack with whorls and tendrils as well as snowflakes. Santa is holding a staff in one hand and is holding a red pack with white and silver highlights over his shoulder in with his other hand! (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 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! (Note: These are not molded or mass produced as are some molded resin Santas from China. All our Russian Santas are hand carved from Linden Wood and no two are ever identical!) This Grandfather Frost (as he is called in Russia) is made in Sergei Posad, Russia and measures just under 6 inches tall by 3.5 inches wide.
