This winter blue Santa is hand painted by the artist in blues, whites, greens and browns. The scene on the front is that of two Russian Orthodox Churches surrounded by snow covered pines trees and snow as far as the eye can see. The scene on the back is also an Orthodox Church. The churches have their windows lit up and are surrounded by trees and snow. Santa is holding a sweet little traditional Russian bear in his arms with the sweetest expression on his face! (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 just over 9.75 inches tall by almost 5.5 inches wide.
