THIS SANTA IS TRULY A CONVERSATION PIECE!! YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY WILL NOT STOP TALKING ABOUT THE SCENES ALL THE WAY AROUND THIS AMAZING SANTA!
This stunning hand painted Russian Santa Claus is painted all the way around and has the sweetest scenes of children and animals all playing in a winter wonderland. The scene the front of this Santa is that of a group of children playing in the snow with their jolly snowman friend and their new musical instruments. They are surrounded by their animal friends - deer, a puppy, birds. Santa is carrying a walking staff that is decorated with snow covered houses and a couple of birds are sitting in the branches of a tree feeding on Rowan or winter berries. On the back, the children continue to play their instruments and dance to the joyful music with their forest friends coming to attend the fun! 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 16.5 inches tall to the top of his staff by 9 inches wide.
TRULY A COLLECTORS PIECE TO BE HANDED DOWN FROM GENERATION TO GENERATION!
