This lovely yellow and gold colored Russian Angel is hand carved and hand painted creating this wonderful statuette wearing a beautiful cloak decorated with delicate leaves and vines with a couple of bluebirds sitting on those vines. There is also a detailed gold and white design painted along her collar, cuffs of the sleeves, and the bottom and front of her gown. You will notice that this angel is looking slightly off to the side - this is a common way to carve or depict angels in the Russian Orthodox faith. Looking straight on implies pride while looking off to a slight angle implies humility or meekness. And usually, Russian artists will not sign religious works of art for the same reason (the words on the bottom of this angel are Sergei Posad - which is the art school/city where the artist studied.) This statuette is very lightly lacquered so it is easily cleaned and protected. The solid linden wood is dried for almost 2 years before it is carved. (Note: These are not mass produced molded resin from China. All of our Russian Santas and statues are one of a kind, unique, and hand carved from Linden Wood so no two are ever identical.) This beautiful angel is made in Sergei Posad, Russia and measures just under 6.25 inches tall with a wingspan of just over 4 inches wide.
