THIS SANTA IS TRULY A WORK OF ART!! This unbelievable Russian Santa Claus is incredibly life-like. Santa's cloak is beautifully hand painted in purples and pinks with whites and golds and is painted with amazing detail. The pattern on this Santa's cloak is painted with raised dots of paint and precious stones that gives his cloak and cap a raised texture. There are 4 Agate stones and 36 Quartz stones. This Santa also has a scene painted on his pack - the scene is a Russian winter village scene with a Russian Orthodox Church with its golden Onion Domes, a little wooden cabin and a horse drawn sleigh being pulled through the snow. And Santa's staff is ornately decorated with a Russian Orthodox church on one side and a coordinating design on the other which matches Santa's cloak perfectly!! 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 17.25 inches tall (to the top of his staff) by 8.25 inches wide.
TRULY A COLLECTORS PIECE TO BE HANDED DOWN FROM GENERATION TO GENERATION!
