This lovely hand painted Russian Santa Claus has amazing details in the face, beard, costume, and scene. The scene is that of a sweet little girl with a brightly colored stocking cap, standing in a birch forest on a snowy winter's day, holding a sweet bunny and surrounded by birds and bunnies! Santa's cloak is beautifully painted in reds with white, silver, and gold edging. Santa has a green patchwork pack thrown over his shoulder and a decorated walking stick in his hand. 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! Please Note: These are not molded or mass produced as are some molded resin Santas from China. This Santa (or Grandfather Frost as he is called in Russia) is made in Sergei Posad, Russia and is signed by the artist and it measures approximately 9.5 inches tall by 4.5 inches from front to back.
