This lovely Russian hand carved Santa Claus is hand painted by the artist creating this Old World looking Santa with the detailed scene on the front of his cloak. The scene is that of a snow covered cabin in the frozen Siberian countryside with a fat Eurasian Bullfinch sitting on a mound with a little branch in his beak. The bush behind him seems to be covered with Rowan or red winter berries. Santa's cloak is red, white and blue and he is holding a rustic walking stick in his hand. 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. 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 8.25 inches tall by 3.5 inches across.
