This lovely Russian Santa Claus is hand painted in tans, reds and golds. The scene on the front of Santa's cloak is that of a little girl and boy building a snowman in a snowy forest. Santa's pack is painted as well with two fat yellow breasted Great Tits sitting on a pine bough full of pine cones. The back of Santas cloak is painted with a lovely pattern. The pack is painted with patches as if his pack is patched up! SEE CLOSE UP PICTURES BELOW. 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! Please Note: These are not molded or mass produced as are some molded resin Santas from China. This Santa (or Grandfather Frost as he is called in Russia) is made in Sergei Posad, Russia and is signed by the artist and measures just over 9.5 inches tall by 5 inches wide.
