This fantastic hand painted Russian Santa Claus has a wonderful rustic Old World look to it. This Santa is painted in blues and whites. The scenes, which are painted on the front and back of his cloak and on his pack, include Victorian winter village scenes reminiscent of a Thomas Kincade painting. The scene on the front of Santa's cloak and pack is of a lovely snow covered home and a brightly decorated Christmas tree under a Victorian gas lamp! The scene on the back is of two more snowy homes surrounded by forest trees with a little boy building a snowman. 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 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. It measures just over 10 inches tall by 6 inches wide.
