This lovely bright gold and green Russian Santa Claus is intricately hand carved and beautifully hand painted in the Golden Uzor style. This unique style utilizes gold layering which creates a raised texture! (See explanation below.) This Santa has golden filigree painted on his costume and golden flowers on his bag - all of which reflect the light. 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 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 mass produced molded resin from China. All 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, Tatiana Makarova. This nicely sized Santa measures just over 7.5 inches tall by 3.75 inches wide.
