This traditional hand carved and hand painted Russian Santa Claus is painted in reds, whites and golds. The scene on the front of his cloak is that of the traditional Russian Snow Maiden in a snowy forest with a sweet little doe and a couple of little birds watching her. Santa's pack is painted with a village scene and a lovely fat Eurasian Bullfinch. This statue is 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 molded or mass produced as are some molded resin Santas from China. All Russian Santas are hand carved from Linden Wood and each one is a unique piece!) This Grandfather Frost (as he is called in Russia) is made in Sergei Posad, Russia. This Santa is signed by the artist and measures approximately 7.5 inches tall (to the top of his staff) by 3.75 inches wide.
