THIS IS HOW SANTA GETS AROUND THOSE WILD SIBERIAN FORESTS!!
This beautiful Russian Santa Claus is hand carved and hand painted by the artist to enhance details in the Santa, his costume, and the traditional Russian brown bear which he is riding. Santa's cloak is painted with bright reds, whites, and golds. Santa also has a pack slung over his shoulder which is painted in light green with pink, blue, green and white accents. The brown bear, which Santa is riding on, has a sweet expression on his face and a decorative collar accented with gold. This statue is lightly lacquered so it is easily cleaned and protected. The linden wood is dried for almost 2 years before it is carved so it will last a lifetime - PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS SANTA IS MADE FROM TWO SEPARATE PIECES OF WOOD. 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, as he is called in Russia, is made in Sergei Posad, Russia and measures just under 7.5 inches tall by just over 6 inches front to back and 2 inches wide.
