This fabulous Russian Santa Claus is hand carved and hand painted by the artist to enhance details in his cloak, the brightly colored sled he is sitting in, and the traditional Russian bear sitting with him in the sled. Santa is sitting back in his seat with his packed toy sack next to him in a bright red cloak highlighted with a gold pattern, and is looking over the head of the bear as if he is trying to figure out where this crazy bear is leading them. As the bear sits in the front seat, he is holding a little Christmas tree in his paws which he looks like he is about to bite into! This statue 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 mass produced molded resin from China. All Russian Santas are one of a kind, unique, and hand carved from Linden Wood so no two Santas are ever identical.) This statuette, is made in Sergei Posad, Russia and measures approximately 6.75 inches tall by just over 8.5 inches front to back, by just under 4.5 inches wide.
