WHAT AN AMAZING WORK OF ART! THIS SANTA CAN BE HANDED DOWN FROM GENERATION TO GENERATION!!
This unbelievable and incredibly life-like looking Russian Santa Claus is intricately hand carved and hand painted by the artist to enhance details in the Santa, his staff, and the lantern he is holding. Santa's cloak and cap are painted in reds and burgundies with gold and silver highlighting and accents. The cloak is painted with raised dots of gold paint which give texture and his cloak, cap, staff and mail satchel are inlaid with semi precious stones - 10 dark Agate and 10 Garnet stones. The edges of Santa's cap and cloak are painted with a gold metallic paint that reflects the light - THIS STATUE ABSOLUTELY SHIMMERS UNDER THE LIGHT!! This statue is lightly 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! (Please Note: These are not molded or mass produced as are some molded resin Santas from China. All 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, is signed by the artist, and has the stones listed on the bottom. The Santa measures approximately 17.75 inches tall by 8.25 inches across.
