This fun and whimsical little Russian Santa Claus (or Grandfather Frost as he is known in Russia) has a scene from one of Russia's most famous fairy tales - ALEKSEI TOLSTOY'S "THE GIGANTIC (OR ENORMOUS) TURNIP". He is hand carved and hand painted by the artist to enhance details in the face, beard and costume giving an old world look to this Santa. The back of Santa's costume is painted in greens and tans - see close up pictures below. 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. (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 is made in Sergei Posad, Russia and is signed by the artist. This nice sized Santa measures approximately 7.75 inches tall by just over 2.75 inches wide.
