This fantastic gold, blue, green and red Russian Santa Claus is intricately hand painted by the artist to enhance details in the face, beard and costume - including the Troika and Russian Orthodox Church scene painted on the front of his cloak. Notice Santa has a number of loose, brightly colored toys in the beautifully decorated pack over his shoulder. 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 properly dried. It does not warp, change shape, or crack and this artistic piece will bring enjoyment for a lifetime! (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 no two are ever identical!) This Grandfather Frost (as he is called in Russia) is made in Sergei Posad, Russia and is signed by the artist. The Santa measures approximately 6.75 inches tall by 4.75 inches wide.
