THIS SANTA WILL BE THE TALK OF YOUR HOLIDAY GATHERINGS!! This exquisite Russian Santa Claus is beautifully hand carved and hand painted by the artist in burgundies or deep reds, whites and golds with white highlighting and colorful glittery accents. The thing that makes this Santa so amazing is the incredible detail and life-like features of Santa's face and beard. This Santa is painted in a unique style with raised dots of paint giving the impression that precious stones are sewn into his cloak, gloves and cap and affixed to his staff and the bright gold treasure chest he is holding. And there is a scene of a Russian Orthodox churches etched and painted on the front of Santa's staff. (SEE CLOSE UP PICTURES BELOW). 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, is signed by the artist and measures approximately 16 inches tall by 11 inches wide.
TRULY A ONE OF A KIND COLLECTOR'S PIECE!!!!!
