This lovely scenic Russian Santa Claus is hand carved and hand painted by the artist creating this wonderful holiday gift for collectors of Santas. This Santa is painted in a style reminiscent of Thomas Kincade. This Santa has a scene painted on the front of his cloak of a brightly lit, snow covered church and steeple. The scene on the back of Santa's cloak is of a brightly lit Victorian house with a large, decorated Christmas tree. Santa is holding his pack (which is also painted with a mini scene of its own) in one hand and a decorated wooden walking staff in the other. Santa's cloak is painted with white swirls which give the impression of blowing, swirling snow. (SEE CLOSE UP PICTURES BELOW.) 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. (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 nice size Santa measures just over 10.25 inches tall by 6 inches wide.
