This sweet, brightly colored red and gold Russian Santa Claus is wonderfully hand carved and hand painted by the artist. Notice the detail on his cloak - from the design made up of hundreds of dots of paint (which gives texture to the Santa) to the edging along the front and back of the cloak to the gold stars falling out of his pocket. This Santa also has the sweetest expression on his face, a beautifully decorated lantern in one hand, and a large stuffed decorated pack in the other hand slung over his shoulder - SEE CLOSE UP PICTURES BELOW. 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! (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 approximately 13.5 inches tall by 6.75 inches wide.
