This lovely Russian Santa Claus is intricately hand carved and hand painted by the artist creating this fantastic Christmas decoration. Santa has a kind smile on his face, is holding an ornately decorated staff in one hand, and has his toy pack sitting on the ground by his side. His cloak is beautifully painted in reds with gold and white accents. The gold paint on Santa's cloak, cap, gloves, staff and pack is layered which creates a raised, textured feel. There are two adorable scenes painted on the front and back of Santa's cloak - on the front is a scene of Santa reading a bedtime story to a sweet little girl. The scene on the back is that of a little girl and boy sitting on their bed, looking out the window into the night sky, getting ready to send a letter to Santa! The scenes are painted with fantastic detail! (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. (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 size Santa measures approximately 12 inches tall by 6.75 inches wide.
