SO THIS IS HOW SANTA GETS GIFTS TO ALL THE GOOD LITTLE MERMAIDS AND MER-BOYS!!!
This whimsical brightly colored Russian Santa Claus is hand carved and hand painted by the artist creating this Santa riding on a fish. Santa is a wearing a red, white, and gold suit with a beautifully decorated bag in his lap. Santa's cloak, cap,, gloves and bag are painted with raised dots that give texture. Santa has a sprig of Rowan or Winter Berries stuck in his beard and a pocket watch painted on his cloak (Remember that in Russia, Santa comes to deliver gifts on New Year's Eve - which is why the pocket watch shows five minutes to midnight!) Santa is perched on top of the fish which is carved and painted in bright colors. 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 our Russian Santas and statues are one of a kind, unique, and hand carved from Linden Wood so no two are ever identical.) This Grandfather Frost, as he is called in Russia, is made in Sergei Posad, Russia, is signed by the artist and measures just over 14 inches tall by just under 9.75 inches across and approximately 4 inches wide.
