This delightful Russian Santa Claus is hand carved and intricately hand painted by the artist in a multitude of bright colors. Santa's cloak is painted in reds with white snowflakes and edging. There is a scene on the front and back of Santa's cloak as well as on his pack. The scene on the front is that of a boy building a snowman while on the back a little girl is riding a sled through her village. His pack has branches of a pine tree - with packages under it and bulbs hanging from it. Santa's staff is painted in turquoise which matches the turquoise on his pack. 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 Grandfather Frost, as he is called in Russia, is made in Sergei Posad, Russia and is signed by the artist. This Santa measures just over 9.25 inches tall by 4.5 inches wide.
