This lovely hand painted and hand carved Russian Santa Claus is painted in blues, reds and whites. He is holding a little Christmas tree in one hand and a golden staff in the other while his cloak has big, white snowflakes painted on it with white edging and accents. Santa has the kindest expression on his face! 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. Linden wood was once used to make drafting boards because it is so stable once it is properly dried. It does not change shape or crack and this artistic piece will bring enjoyment for a lifetime! (Note: These are not mass produced molded resin from China. All Russian Santas and statuettes are one of a kind, unique, and hand carved from Linden Wood so no two are ever identical.) This Santa is signed by the artist and measures just over 9.25 inches tall by 3.75 inches wide.
