This exquisite Russian Santa Claus is incredibly life-like and detailed! This fantastic Santa is hand carved and hand painted by the artist in reds and golds. Santa's cloak has an intricate and detailed pattern painted on the front and back of the gown and cloak This Santa is painted in a unique style with raised dots of paint giving the impression that precious stones are sewn into his cloak and pack - this process gives a textured feel to Santa's costume. Santa's large pack is decorated with iridescent star-shaped flowers. Santa is holding a staff decorated with a mini Christmas tree. This statue is 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. The Santa measures approximately 10.5 inches tall by 6.5 inches wide.
AN AMAZING COLLECTORS' ITEM THAT CAN BE HANDED DOWN FROM GENERATION TO GENERATION!!
