WOW! WHAT A PERFECT GIFT FOR COLLECTORS OF VICTORIAN ART!! This beautiful light blue Russian Santa Claus is hand carved and hand painted by the artist creating this amazing piece of artwork with Old World Russian village scenes. The front of Santa's cloak depicts a snowy village street with a warmly lit church, houses, a bridge over the river and a horse drawn sleigh coming up the lane. The back of the Santa has a scene of a frozen pond with ice skaters having fun on the ice - as well as buildings in the near and far distance. Santa is holding up his pack which is also decorated and reminds us of swirling, blowing snow. This Santa is very 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 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 just under 13.75 inches tall by 6.75 inches wide.
