This beautiful brightly colored Russian Santa Claus is hand carved and hand painted by the artist in reds, golds, blues, greens and whites. Santa's cloak is painted with thick dots of paint that give a raised texture to Santa's cloak, cap, and pack. Santa's beard is highlighted with gold and has a sprig of winter or Rowan berries caught in it and Santa is leaning on his rustic looking walking stick under the weight of his pack filled with toys! 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 6.25 inches tall by 3 inches from front to back.
