This lovely red and gold Russian Santa Claus is wonderfully hand carved and hand painted by the artist. Notice the detail on his bag and the edging of his cloak. This Santa also has a lovely winter village scene on the front of his cloak with quaint wooden homes, a Russian Orthodox Church, and the Golden Onion Domes - 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 8 inches tall by 5.5 inches wide.
