This sweet Russian Santa Claus is hand painted by the artist in watercolors with acrylic highlights creating this precious scene with a sweet little girl in a bright knitted cap, in a snowy wood, surrounded by birds and bunnies. Santa's pack is painted as well with a village scene and a fat Eurasian Bullfinch (See close up pictures). Santa's cloak is painted in reds with white snowflakes and a beautiful white and gold edging. This Santa is lightly 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 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. This Santa (or Grandfather Frost as he is called in Russia) is made in Sergei Posad, Russia and is signed by the artist and measures approximately 7.25 inches tall (to the top of his staff) by 3.75 inches wide.
