This beautiful Russian Santa Claus (or Grandfather Frost as he is known in Russia) has scenes from one of Russia's most famous ballets - PYOTR TCHAIKOVSKY'S "THE NUTCRACKER". This Santa is hand carved and hand painted by the artist to enhance details in the face, beard and costume giving an old world look to this Santa. The scene on Santa's costume is that of Clara being attacked by the Mouse King and his soldiers while the Nutcracker Soldier fights them off. On the back we see a scene from the ballet from the dance of the snowflakes. This Santa is also holding a sweet Russian bear over his shoulder. 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. (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 Grandfather Frost is made in Sergei Posad, Russia and is signed by the artist. This nice sized Santa measures just under 13.75 inches tall by 7 inches wide.
