This remarkable Russian Santa Claus is hand carved and hand painted by the artist in whites, reds/burgundies, blues, and golds. The cloak, cap, and pack are painted with a lovely curly-cue pattern. Santa's pack is thrown over his shoulder and in the other hand he is carrying a golden walking stick. 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. This Santa (or Grandfather Frost as he is called in Russia) is made in Sergei Posad, Russia and is signed by the artist. It measures just over 9.75 inches tall by 5 inches wide.
