THIS SANTA STATUETTE IS TRULY A WORK OF ART!! This unbelievable Russian Santa Claus is hand carved and hand painted by the artist creating this amazing piece of artwork with Victorian, Thomas Kinkade style scenes. The front of Santa's cloak has a large Victorian church with brightly colored stained glass windows, all decorated for Christmas. We see a couple of large pine trees brightly decorated for Christmas and a horse drawn sleigh driving across the bridge in front of the church and past all the worshipers going into the church to celebrate Christmas. The back of Santa's cloak has a large Victorian house also decorated for Christmas with a friendly snowman in the yard people strolling across a snow-covered bridge. The scenes are reminiscent of a Thomas Kinkade painting. Santa is holding a lit lantern way up high to light the way and and a silver painted staff! 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 approximately 21.5 inches tall (to the top of the lantern) by 9 inches wide.
