This lovely green and gold Russian Santa Claus or Grandfather Frost, as he is called in Russia, is painted in the Golden Uzor Style. The artist, T. Makarova, highlights Santa’s cloak with gold paint giving texture and a very ornate pattern. This Santa has a brightly lit golden lantern in one hand and a beautiful toy sack in the other! Santa's lantern is decorated with glitter which causes it to shimmer in the light. 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. All Russian Santas are hand carved from Linden Wood and no two are ever identical!) This Grandfather Frost is made in Sergei Posad, Russia, is signed by the artist and measures approximately 9.5 inches tall by just over 4 inches wide.
