This lovely Old World Santa Claus is beautifully hand carved and hand painted by the artist in reds, greens, whites and golds. Notice the detail on his cloak - there are fantastic patterns on the front and back of Santa's cloak - from the swirling patterns along the back edges of his cloak to the geometric patterns on his cap and front and back of his cloak. This Santa is holding a Christmas tree in one hand which is dusted with snow and has red Winter or Rowan berries caught in it and a walking stick in the other. Santa also has a sprig of berries caught in his beard - SEE CLOSE UP PICTURES BELOW. 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! (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 9 inches tall by 5 inches wide.
