THIS SANTA IS TRULY WORK OF ART!
This marvelous hand painted Russian Santa Claus is painted with 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 building a snowman surrounded by their animal friends - deer, a kitten, birds. Santa is carrying a beautifully decorated walking staff in one hand and a scenic bag in the other. The scene on the back is that of a Russian Snowmaiden and children dancing in the snow 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 16.25 inches tall by 8 inches wide.
