This amazing hand carved and hand painted Russian Santa Claus is painted in blues greys, and whites with a brightly colored scene on the front and back of his cloak. The scene is that of Santa sitting in his sleigh, surrounded by his reindeer, getting ready to head out and deliver all those gifts and packages to the good little children on Christmas eve - you can see his list and the sacks of toys in his sleigh. On the back we see three cheerful snowmen serenading Santa as he prepares for his Christmas eve trip around the world at the stroke of midnight. Santa is holding a walking staff in one hand and a brightly lit lantern in the other. This statue is lightly lacquered so it is easily cleaned and protected. The solid linden wood is dried for almost 2 years before it is carved. (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!) This Grandfather Frost (as he is called in Russia) is made in Sergei Posad, Russia. This Santa is signed by the artist and measures approximately 6.25 inches tall by 5.25 inches wide.
