THIS PHENOMENAL RUSSIAN SANTA CLAUSE IS AN ABSOLUTELY BREATHTAKING WORK OF ART AND WILL BE A COLLECTOR'S PIECE TO BE HANDED DOWN FROM GENERATION TO GENERATION!
This Santa is very realistic looking and detailed. Santa's cloak is painted in reds, blues, and golds 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. Notice the detail on his cloak, the beautifully decorated blue bag over his shoulder, and the decorated walking staff in his hand! His sash is painted with an iridescent look to it and the gold paint gives a gilded look that causes the statue to glow under the lights! SEE CLOSE UP PICTURES BELOW. This Santa is 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 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 (as he is called in Russia) is made in Sergei Posad, Russia, and measures just under 12 inches tall by 7 inches wide.
