This lovely light blue Russian Santa Claus is hand carved and hand painted by the artist creating this amazing piece of artwork with Old World Victorian village scenes. The front of Santa's cloak depicts a warmly lit Victorian home with icicles hanging from it with a little boy building a friendly snowman. There is a decorated Christmas tree near the front of the house and a woman approaching the front steps of the house. The back of the Santa has a scene of another Victorian home with a snowman and friendly neighbors out for a stroll. Santa is holding a decorated staff and his cloak is decorated with swirls that look like swirling, blowing snow. 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 properly dried. It does not warp change shape or crack and this artist piece will bring enjoyment for a lifetime! (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 made in Sergei Posad, Russia and is signed by the artist. The Santa measures just over 10.25 inches tall by 6.25 inches wide.
