THIS SANTA IS TRULY A WORK OF ART!! This unbelievable Russian Santa Claus is incredibly life-like as he rides this hand carved and hand painted reindeer. Santa's cloak is beautifully hand painted in reds and golds with blue accents. This Santa has a pack thrown over his shoulders with a scene painted on it - the scene is a Russian winter scene with a cabin along the banks of a river and a snow covered mountain in the background. The reindeer that Santa is sitting on is carved from several pieces of wood and is incredibly realistic. (The reindeer's antlers can be removed for storage.) He is prancing along the snow covered base that is painted with branches and tree stumps. 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 19 inches tall (to the top of the reindeer's antlers) by 11.75 inches across by 6.25 inches wide (between the antlers).
