This lovely hand painted Russian Santa Claus is a wonderful gift for collectors of Santas. Santa is leaning on a rustic wooden walking stick and the scene on the back of Santa's cloak is that of a Russian Orthodox Church with one gold and two blue Onion Domes - which Russian churches are famous for! Santa's cloak is painted in a lovely mauve or burgundy color with white edging. (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 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 just under 9 inches tall by 4.75 inches wide.
