This fantastic red, blue, purple, green and gold Russian Santa Claus is wonderfully hand carved and hand painted by the artist. Notice the detail and the ornate pattern on the front and back of his cloak. The colorful pack he has slung over his shoulder is painted with greens, blues and purples and snowflakes are painted on his pack and cloak. Santa is also carrying a basket of golden bread loaves over one arm and a cute little Russian Bear in the 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 approximately 7.5 inches tall by 6.25 inches from front to back.
