This charming, old world Russian Santa Claus (or Grandfather Frost as he is known in Russia) is hand carved and hand painted by the artist creating this gorgeous Christmas decoration. Santa's cloak and cap are painted in lovely purples, whites, and golds with a number of raised dots of paint which give the impression that precious stones or jewels are sewn into the fabric. Santa is holding an ornately decorated pack over his shoulder with one hand and is holding a matching staff in the other. The fabulous scene painted on the front of Santa's cloak one from Tchaikovsky's NUTCRACKER BALLET. It is the scene where Clara receives her wooden Nutcracker in front of the giant Christmas tree. (SEE CLOSE UP PICTURES BELOW!) 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. (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 is made in Sergei Posad, Russia and is signed by the artist, Tabolina. This nicely sized Santa measures approximately 12.75 inches tall by 8.5 inches across.
