WOW!! THIS SANTA WILL BE THE TALK OF YOUR HOLIDAY GATHERINGS! IT IS UNBELIEVABLY GORGEOUS AND DETAILED!
This stunning hand carved and hand painted Russian Santa Claus statuette is absolutely amazing. Santa's cloak is painted burgundy/raspberry and is overlaid with gold paint and multiple colors of paint which create colorful patterns and reflect the light. The cloak is painted with a number of raised dots of paint giving the impression that the cloak is covered in gilding and numerous precious stones. Santa is holding an ornately decorated staff in one and and a red headed pheasant in the other. Notice the sweet, realistic expression on his face. (See close up pictures below.) This statuette is 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 (as he is called in Russia) is made in Sergei Posad, Russia and is signed by the artist. The Santa measures just over 23.5 inches tall by 10.5 inches wide.
WHAT AN AMAZING COLLECTOR'S PIECE TO BE HANDED DOWN FROM GENERATION TO GENERATION!!
