WOW!! THIS SANTA WILL BE THE TALK OF YOUR HOLIDAY GATHERINGS! IT IS UNBELIEVABLY GORGEOUS AND DETAILED!
This stunning hand carved and hand painted Russian Santa Claus statuette is absolutely amazing. Santa's cloak is painted in reds and golds and is covered with little white, red, gold and bronze raised dots of paint that give a raised texture and the impression of jewels adorning his cap, cloak and costume. Santa is wearing stripped trousers with sturdy winter boots - which are decorated to match his stylish costume! Santa is holding an ornately decorated staff in one hand with a candle-lit lantern on top of it and and a beautifully decorated Christmas tree thrown over his other shoulder. Notice the sweet, realistic expression on his face. (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 over 16.5 inches tall by 7.25 inches wide.
WHAT AN AMAZING COLLECTOR'S PIECE TO BE HANDED DOWN FROM GENERATION TO GENERATION!!
