This charming Russian Santa Claus is hand carved and hand painted by the artist creating this statuette of Santa Claus (or Grandfather Frost, as he is called in Russia) sitting on his sled or sleigh getting ready to go deliver all the toys and gifts stuffed into that large pack slung over his shoulder. Santa is a wearing a bright red suit highlighted with gold and white and sturdy brown boots on his feet. He is holding a rustic walking stick in his hand as he gets ready to step out of his sleigh. Santa's pack is patched up and painted with swirls. Santa and his sleigh are sitting on a base that is painted to look like swirling snow. This Santa is lacquered so it is easily cleaned and protected. The solid linden wood is dried for almost 2 years before it is carved. (Note: These are not mass produced molded resin from China. All Russian Santas are one of a kind, unique, and hand carved from Linden Wood so no two Santas are ever identical.) This statuette is made in Sergei Posad, Russia and measures approximately 10.25 inches tall by approximately 7 inches wide.
