This brightly colored golden Russian Santa Claus is intricately hand carved and hand painted by the artist. We see the details in the Santa, the polar bear, the lovely pattern painted on the polar bear's blanket, and the snowflake painted on Santa's toy pack. This Santa is painted in the GOLDEN UZOR style in which the artist, T. Makarova, highlights Santa’s cloak with gold paint giving texture and a very ornate pattern. This statue 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! (Please Note: These are not molded or mass produced as are some molded resin Santas from China. All 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 10 inches tall by 9.25 inches front to back from the tip of the polar bear's nose the back of his foot and 4 inches wide.
THIS SANTA IS NUMBERED 1 OUT OF JUST 5!
