This hand carved and hand painted Russian Santa Claus has amazing details in the face, beard and costume and the sled he is riding on. The scene painted on Santa's bag depicts a snowy Russian Orthodox church with the famous GOLDEN ONION DOMES! (See close up pictures of the incredible detail!) This Santa is very lightly 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 mass produced molded resin from China. All our 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 nicely sized Santa measures approximately 8.25 inches tall by 5 inches wide.
