This beautiful red, blue and gold Russian Santa Claus is wonderfully hand carved and hand painted by the artist. Notice the lovely blue and gold pattern on his blue bag, the snowflakes on his bag and costume, and the gold edging on his cloak. Santa is holding his staff and bag aloft in his outstretched arm in a "Moses-like" stance when God ensured victory against the Amalekites as long as Moses held up his arms - 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 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 is signed by the artist. The Santa measures approximately 8 inches tall (to the top of his staff) or just over 6.75 inches tall (to the top of his sack) by 5 inches wide.
