WHAT AN AMAZING WORK OF ART!! THIS IS TRULY A COLLECTOR'S ITEM TO BE PASSED DOWN FROM GENERATION TO GENERATION!!
This unbelievable hand carved and hand painted Russian Santa Claus is painted with amazing skill. The artist of this fantastic work of art has painted this Old World Santa in greys and browns creating this unparalleled work of art! Santa has a very kind, sweet expression on his face. The scene on the front of Santa's cloak is that of a Russian family dressed in traditional Russian dress. The mama of the family is about to serve fresh, hot Russian bulochki (or yeast rolls) to her excited and expectant children. Santa is holding a beautifully painted walking staff in his hand and has a decorated Christmas tree over thrown over his shoulder. On the back of the Santa's cloak is painted the scene of three girls in traditional Russian dress out in a snowy winter wood building a snowman. SEE CLOSE UP PICTURES BELOW. This Santa 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! (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 is made in Sergei Posad, Russia, and is signed by the artist. The Santa measures approximately 14.25 inches tall to the top of his staff by 9 inches wide.
TRULY A "TRADITIONAL" RUSSIAN GRANDFATHER FROST!!
