This wonderful Russian Santa Claus has a hand painted cloak in reds, blues, and greens. Santa has such a sweet, kind looking expression on his face and he is holding a staff decorated with a Christmas tree atop. The detailed scene on the front of his cloak is that of Santa in his sleigh full of gifts being pulled by two reindeer over the tops of snow covered trees and houses on a moonlit night. On the back of Santa's cloak is a window scene with a view of a snow covered cabin and two fat male Eurasian Billfinches sitting on a branch. (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. 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 Grandfather Frost, as he is called in Russia, is made in Sergei Posad, Russia and is signed by the artist. This nice sized Santa measures approximately 14 inches tall (to the top of his staff) by 8.5 inches wide.
