This breathtaking Russian Santa Claus is incredibly life-like and detailed and will be the talk of all your holiday gatherings!
This Santa is hand carved and hand painted by the artist in greens, blues, and golds. Santa's cloak has an intricate and detailed pattern on the front and back of his 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. The gold gives a gilded look which allows the light to reflect off the statue. Santa holds a beautiful staff topped with a mini Christmas tree and has a toy pack tossed over his shoulder! 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 just over 11.75 inches tall by 7 inches wide.
