This sweet little Russian Santa Claus has the kindest expression on his face! This Santa is hand carved and hand painted and is holding a pack with a scene of a Traditional Russian Troika painted on it. A Troika is a sleigh which is pulled by three horses and is a very important part of Russian culture and history. Santa's cloak is painted in reds and is highlighted with white and gold paint as well as gold glitter. This Santa is holding a brightly lit lantern in his raised hand. SEE CLOSE UP PICTURES BELOW. This Santa is very lightly lacquered so it is easily cleaned and protected. The solid linden wood is dried for almost 2 years before it is carved. (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. This Santa is signed by the artist and measures just over 6.75 inches tall to the top of his hand by 3.25 inches wide.
