This unique Russian Santa Claus ("Grandfather Frost" as he is called in Russia) is intricately hand carved and hand painted in silver and white by the artist to enhance details in the face, beard and costume. The scene on the front of Santa's cloak is that of a brightly colored village scene with snow covered wooden homes and a golden onion domed Orthodox Church. The artist has a unique style of highlighting Santa's beard with gray to give it a smoky look. It is lightly lacquered so it is easily cleaned and protected. The solid linden wood is dried for almost 2 years before it is carved. (Note: These are not mass produced molded resin from China. All Russian Santas are hand carved from Linden Wood and no two are ever identical!) This Grandfather Frost is made in Sergei Posad, Russia and is signed by the artist. The Santa measures approximately 9 inches tall by 4.25 inches wide.
