This stunning Russian Santa Claus is an amazing collector's piece to hand down from generation to generation! This Santa is hand painted in blues, whites, and golds and his cloak is decorated with raised dots of paint which give the impression that his cloak is decorated with precious stones or gems! His cap, gloves and cloak are all edged and decorated in gold paint and he is holding a beautifully decorated staff which matches the painting on his cloak. At his side is a beautifully decoratThe scene on the front of Santa's cloak is that of a icy cold winter forest scene. (SEE CLOSE UP PICTURES BELOW.) This Santa is very lightly 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 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 mass produced molded resin from China. All Russian Santas are one of a kind, unique, and hand carved from Linden Wood so no two Santas are ever identical.) This Grandfather Frost, as he is called in Russia, is made in Sergei Posad, Russia and is signed by the artist. This nice sized Santa measures just under 12.5 inches tall (to the top of his staff) by 6 inches wide.
