This wonderful Russian Santa Claus is hand carved and hand painted in blues, reds, and whites. Notice his flowing beard and the sweet expression on his face. Santa's cloak and pack are painted with curly-cue patterns on both the front and back and his pack is painted with snowflakes. Santa is slightly stooped over and is holding his pack over his shoulder with one hand and a golden walking stick in the other. (SEE CLOSE UP PICTURES BELOW.) This statuette 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 just over 9.5 inches tall by 4.75 inches wide.
