WOW!! THIS PHENOMENAL SANTA STATUE WILL BE THE CENTERPIECE OF YOUR HOLIDAY GATHERINGS!!
This Russian Santa Claus is hand carved and hand painted by the artist in greens and tans with white and gold accents! This Santa is painted in a unique style with raised dots of paint and glitter giving the impression that precious stones are sewn into his cloak and affixed to his staff, cap and gloves. This process gives a textured feel to Santa's costume. Santa's cloak is also inlaid with an iridescent film which gives makes the cloak, cap and gloves look as if silver thread is woven into the fabric. The front of Santa's cloak is painted dark green with gold/multi-colored floral designs. His overcoat is painted in blues, greys and tans with the flowers created in a multitude of iridescent color, golds, whites, and greens. In one hand, Santa is holding an ornately decorated staff which is painted all the way around with raised dots, while in the other hand, Santa is holding a beautiful yellow breasted bird - the Eurasian Tit. 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! Please Note: These are not molded or mass produced as are some molded resin Santas from China. This Santa (or Grandfather Frost as he is called in Russia) is made in Sergei Posad, Russia and is signed by the artist. It measures just under 20.75 inches tall by approximately 14 inches wide.
A COLLECTOR'S PIECE TO BE HANDED DOWN FROM GENERATION TO GENERATION!!
