THIS UNBELIEVABLE RUSSIAN SANTA CLAUS IS HAND CARVED AND HAND PAINTED BY THE ARTIST CREATING THIS FANTASTIC PIECE OF ART TO BE HANDED DOWN FROM GENERATION TO GENERATION!!
Santa's cloak is painted in tans with white and gold accents and designs. Santa is holding a long lighter used for lighting gas lamps and is reaching up to light this candle lit street lamp. Santa has such a kind and serene expression on his face. Santa is bundled up in his cloak, cap, trousers, and sturdy boots. Santa's cloak is decorated with semi-precious stones that look like they are jewels sewn into his cloak or cap. It contains 16 Aventurine stones and 30 Carnelian stones. The street lamp is also decorated with these stones. This Santa is lacquered so it is easily cleaned and protected. The solid linden wood is dried for almost 2 years before it is carved. This statuette separates into 6 pieces: The Santa, long lighter, base, street lamp, lid to the street lamp and the wreath. The set can be taken apart for storage. (Note: These are not mass produced molded resin from China. All Russian Santas are one of a kind, unique, and hand carved from Linden Wood so no two Santas are ever identical.) This statuette is made in Sergei Posad, Russia and measures just over 17.75 inches tall to the top of the street lamp by approximately 10 inches across from the edge of the wreath to the edge of Santa's cloak by approximately 7 inches front to back. On the top of the base are listed the types of semi-precious stones and on the bottom of the base is the artist's signature as well as the place where this lovely statuette was created. On the bottom of Santa's foot is the name of the carver.
