This fantastic Russian Santa Claus is hand carved and hand painted by the artist in bright reds and greens. This Santa is holding a bag in one hand that is decorated with pine boughs and red Winter or Rowan berries and the other hand is raised as he rings a bell! The edge of Santa's cloak is also decorated with green swirls or curly-cues and red dots or berries. SEE CLOSE UP PICTURES BELOW. 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! (Note: These are not molded or mass produced as are some molded resin Santas from China. All our 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 10 inches to the top of his bell by 5 inches wide.
