This sweet Russian Santa Claus is hand painted by the artist in watercolor and acrylic paint creating this fantastic Santa with this scene of two children getting distracted from their chore of gathering firewood to decorate a tree with the only thing they have handy - snowballs. There is also a winter village scene with a bright red bird painted on Santa's pack (See close up pictures). Santa's cloak is painted burgundy with white snowflakes and white edging and highlights. 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 and measures approximately 8.5 inches tall by 5 inches wide.
