This beautiful Russian Santa Claus is intricately hand carved and hand painted by the artist creating this lovely statuette. The scene, which is painted both on the front and back of the Santa, is that of traditional Russian troikas plowing through the deep snow of a Russian village. This Santa (or Grandfather Frost as he is called in Russia) is lacquered so it is easily cleaned and protected. The solid linden wood is dried for almost 2 years before it is carved. 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! (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 each one is a unique piece!) is made in Sergei Posad, Russia. This Santa is signed by the artist and measures approximately 8.75 inches tall by 4.5 inches wide.
