This fabulous hand painted Russian Santa Claus has gorgeous details in the face, beard, costume, and scene. The scene is that of young children exchanging gifts and playing together in the snow on a winter's day. On the front the little boy is so pleased with himself because he gave his little friend the perfect gift. On the back of the cloak the friends are sledding (See close up pictures). Santa's pack is painted with a little village scene with little birds and is filled with toys and treats! (And the toys can be removed and rearranged if desired.) The solid linden wood is dried for almost 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 12.5 inches tall by 7 inches wide.
