This spectacular Russian Santa Claus is beautifully hand painted by the artist creating this fantastic work of art in reds and golds. The scene, on the front of Santa's cloak, is that of a traditional Russian troika with a young man sweeping his sweetheart off her feet into the sleigh for a romantic, snowy, ride. Santa is holding a fantastic walking stick brightly painted on the front and the back of the stick! This Santa (or Grandfather Frost as he is called in Russia) is lacquered so it is easily cleaned and protected. The solid linden wood is dried for almost 2 years before it is carved. Linden wood was once used to make drafting boards because it is so stable once 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 Russian Santas are hand carved from Linden Wood and each one is a unique piece!) is made in Sergei Posad, Russia. This Santa is signed by the artist and measures approximately 12.5 inches tall by 7.25 inches wide.
