This beautiful Russian hand carved Santa Claus is hand painted in bright colors creating this lovely Santa and the detailed scene on the front of this Santa's cloak. The scene is that of a young girl and boy in a snowy village sledding with some of their feathered forest friends. On the back of his cloak are more of their forest friends - birds, a sweet little deer, and a squirrel up in the tree. Santa also has a large Christmas tree over his shoulders with pine cones! 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. 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 just over 13.25 inches tall by 9.25 inches across (from the bottom of the tree trunk to the tip of the tree).
