This whimsical Russian Santa Claus is hand carved and hand painted in reds, golds, and blues with a sweet little Russian Snowman sitting at his feet. Notice the gold highlights and the snowflakes on his cloak, his high collar and and his walking stick with a little tree at the top of it. The little Snowman is wearing an upside down bucket on his head, is holding a little broom in his hand and his carrot nose sticks straight out! (See close up pictures below.) This statuette is 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! (Note: These are not molded or mass produced as are some molded resin Santas from China. All our 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 approximately 12.25 inches tall by 8.5 inches wide (from the edge of Santa's walking stick to the edge of the Snowman's broom).
