This wonderfully detailed Russian Santa Claus is ornately hand painted by the artist creating this Santa with a fantastic Snowmaiden painted on his cloak. The scene is that of Grandfather Frost's Granddaughter, The Snowmaiden, standing is a snowy wood carrying a bunch of Winter or Rowan berries and surrounded by her bird friends. Note the details in Santa's face, the Snowmaiden, and the scene on the back of a Russian Orthodox Church or monastery with its famous Onion Domes. (See close up pictures below of the incredible detail!) 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. 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! (Note: These are not mass produced molded resin from China. All our 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 nicely sized Santa measures just over 17.25 inches tall by 6 inches wide.
THIS SANTA IS NUMBERED ONE OUT OF JUST ONE!
