This beautiful Russian Santa Claus is hand carved and hand painted in reds and golds, with white and silver highlighting. Notice the ornate designs painted on his on his cloak, his his vest and his trousers. Santa is holding a brightly lit lantern in one hand and a sturdy walking stick in the other. (SEE CLOSE UP PICTURES BELOW!) 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 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! (Note: These are not molded or mass produced as are some molded resin Santas from China. All our Russian Santas are hand carved from Linden Wood and no two are ever identical!) This Grandfather Frost (as he is called in Russia) is made in Sergei Posad, Russia and is signed by the artist. The Santa measures just under 12 inches tall by 5.75 inches wide.
