This tremendous Russian Santa Claus is hand carved and hand painted by the artist creating this fantastic Santa statuette. The scene is that of a group of villagers gathering around a traditional Russian Samovar for hot drinks on a cold winter's day. Santa has a sweet expression on his face and a curly beard. There is also a scene with two bright red love birds sitting in on a tree bough painted on Santa's pack (See close up pictures). Santa's cloak is painted burgundy with white snowflakes and an ornate edging painted all around the cloak. 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! Please Note: These are not molded or mass produced as are some molded resin Santas from China. This Santa (or Grandfather Frost as he is called in Russia) is made in Sergei Posad, Russia and is signed by the artist and measures approximately 9.5 inches tall by 8 inches from front to back.
