This fun hand painted Russian Santa Claus has amazing details. The scene is that of a young boy and girl playing (maybe dancing?) in the snow. (See close up pictures). On the back of Santa's cloak is a little girl dressed like the Traditional Russian Snow Maiden holding a couple of friendly birds. Santa has a brightly lit lantern in one hand and a raised walking stick in the other. This Santa is lightly 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! Please Note: These are not molded or mass produced as are some molded resin Santas from China. This Santa (or Grandfather Frost as he is called in Russia) is made in Sergei Posad, Russia and is signed by the artist. It measures approximately 5.75 inches tall by 4.5 inches wide.
