This charming Russian Santa Claus is a fantastic Christmas decoration for your home. The statue is hand carved and hand painted in reds, blacks, turquoises, whites, silver and golds. Santa is wearing a tall cap and both his cap and cloak are accented with gold and silver paint and highlighted with gold and silver glitter causing this statue to shimmer in the light. In one hand, Santa is holding a pack that is decorated in the same pattern as his cap, and in the other a fat little bird! SEE CLOSE UP PICTURES BELOW. This Santa is lightly lacquered so it is easily cleaned and protected. (The top pom-pom of Santa's cap is removable for storage.) 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 just under 11 inches tall by 5 inches wide.
