SO THIS IS HOW SANTA SPENDS HIS FREE TIME - ON SKIS AT THE ROCKY MOUNTAIN SKI RESORTS!! This fun hand painted Russian Santa Claus has amazing details in the face, beard, costume, and the skis and ski poles that he is holding. Notice the Golden Floral pattern on the back of his pack! This Santa is painted in the unique style know as GOLDEN UZOR. With Golden Uzor painting, the artist layers the gold paint creating a raised pattern on the Santa's cloak which reflects under the light. 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. This Santa (or Grandfather Frost as he is called in Russia) is made in Sergei Posad, Russia and is signed by the artist. It measures just over 10.25 inches tall by 5.5 inches wide from the tip of the skis to the back.
