This stunning Russian Santa Claus is hand carved and stained by the artist to enhance details in the flowers, leaves, and designs carved into Santa's costume, cloak and his bag. This artist carves into the wood creating the depressions or indentations which make up the pattern or design in this fantastic Santa. Then the wood is stained and sanded which highlights the patterns. (See close up pictures below!) 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 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 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 Santa measures approximately 13.5 inches tall by 5.25 inches wide.
THIS SANTA IS NUMBERED 1 OUT OF JUST 2!!
