This lovely hand carved and hand painted Russian Snow Maiden statuette is an amazing work of art in silver and grays. Her underskirt is painted with a lacy pattern and her cloak is painted with a winter snowy village scene - complete with little cabins and Russian Orthodox Churches and their famous Onion Domes! This Snow Maiden 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 so it will last a lifetime. Linden wood was once used to make drafting boards because it is so stable once properly dried. It does not warp, change shape, or crack and this artistic piece will bring enjoyment for a lifetime! Please Note: These are not molded or mass produced as are some molded resin statuettes from China. This Snow Maiden (or Snegoorichka as she is called in Russian) is made in Sergei Posad, Russia and is signed by the artist. It measures approximately 8.75 inches tall by 4 inches wide.
