This beautifully detailed Russian Santa Claus is intricately hand carved and hand painted by the artist to enhance details in the face, beard and costume and this amazing moon he is sitting on. Notice the gold highlights on his bright winter blue cloak and cap as well as the sash and mail satchel by his side. Santa is holding a bright gold "Starburst" staff in his hand. Our friend, the moon, has a friendly expression on his face. He is also wearing a cap and has a curly beard that has hints of Arabian Nights! SEE CLOSE UP PICTURES BELOW! This statuette is 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! (Note: These are not molded or mass produced as are some molded resin Santas from China. All our Russian Santas are hand carved from Linden Wood and no two are ever identical!) This Grandfather Frost (as he is called in Russia) is made in Sergei Posad, Russia and is signed by the artist. The Santa measures just under 16.25 inches tall to the top of his starburst by 10 inches wide.
