THIS GORGEOUS HOLIDAY DECORATION WILL BE THE TALK OF ALL OF YOUR HOLIDAY GATHERINGS!!
This stunning hand painted Russian Santa Claus is hand carved and hand painted by the artist creating this amazing Santa statuette! Santa's cloak is beautifully hand painted with a gorgeous floral pattern in blues, greys, golds, and whites with gold highlights. This Santa is painted with a unique style called “Abramtsova”. This technique is extremely rare and time consuming. It requires the artist to paint a layer of clear frosted paint then quickly removing a portion of the paint before it is dry. This creates a frost layering over the previous layer of paint giving an iridescent look. Currently, Natasha, the artist who painted these Statuettes, is the only artist we know of using the Abramtsova technique. Santa is holding a lovely walking staff which matches his cloak and his toy pack is down at his side. SEE CLOSE UP PICTURES BELOW. 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! (Note: These are not molded or mass produced as are some molded resin Santas from China. All our Russian Santas are hand carved from Linden Wood and no two are ever identical!) This Grandfather Frost is made in Sergei Posad, Russia, and is signed by the artist. The Santa measures approximately 12 inches tall by 7.5 inches wide.
