This stunning brightly colored red, gold and white Russian Santa Claus is wonderfully hand carved and hand painted by the artist creating this amazing work of art. This Santa's cloak is made up of hundreds of dots of red and gold paint giving a textured feel to the cloak - and notice the cloak is edged in gold. Santa also has a sprig of holly berries or winter berries caught in his beard. And Santa is holding an ornately decorated staff in one hand and a sweet little bird in his other! 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 just over 9.5 inches tall by 4.75 inches wide.
