This sweet bright red, white, and gold Russian Santa Claus is intricately hand carved and hand painted. Notice the curly-cues and the snowflakes painted on his cloak and the gold pattern on the bag over his shoulder. Santa has a very sweet expression on his face and is holding a golden walking stick. (See close up pictures below.) 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 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, is signed by the artist, and measures approximately 6.25 inches tall by 3.5 inches wide.
