This wonderful Russian Santa Claus is perched on his rocking chair holding a storybook in his hand! This Santa is hand carved and hand painted by the artist in reds, blues, greens, whites and golds. Santa is sitting on his wooden rocking chair which is nicely painted and detailed - AND THE CHAIR ACTUALLY ROCKS BACK AND FORTH! Santa's storybook is painted with writing on the covers and has writing and an illustration on the inside (SEE CLOSE UP PICTURES BELOW!) This statue 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 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 Santas from China. All Russian Santas are hand carved from Linden Wood and no two are ever identical!) This Grandfather Frost, as he is called in Russia, is hand crafted in Sergei Posad, Russia, signed by the artist and measures approximately 10.25 inches tall by 4.25 inches wide by 7 inches from front to back. The Santa can be removed from the rocking chair for storage.
