This remarkable Santa is hand painted by the artist in reds, blues, whites, and golds. The scene on the front is from the famous Russian ballet SWAN LAKE by famous Russian composer Pyotr Tchaikovsky. The scene is that of Odette and Prince Siegfried dancing together. The swan is evident in the bottom left corner of the scene and another is painted on the bag at Santa's side. The entire Santa is dotted with blue and white (clear) gems which causes the Santa to sparkle under the lights. Santa is holding a staff in one hand and a pack down at his side. (SEE CLOSE UP PICTURES BELOW). This Santa (or Grandfather Frost as he is called in Russia) is lacquered so it is easily cleaned and protected. The solid linden wood is dried for almost 2 years before it is carved. 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! (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 each one is a unique piece!) is made in Sergei Posad, Russia. This Santa is signed by the artist and measures approximately 11.25 inches tall by almost 5.5 inches wide.
