THIS STATUETTE WILL BE THE TALK OF YOUR HOLIDAY GATHERINGS!! This stunning and absolutely unbelievable Russian Santa Claus is beautifully hand carved and hand painted by the artist creating this unique Christmas decoration with Santa sitting on the moon! This moon is painted blue and gold with a friendly smile on his face and is decorated with star-bursts or flowers in gold, blue and white. Santa's cloak, gloves and cap are all painted in reds with blue and gold accents. Santa is holding a staff shaped like a star-burst in one hand and a pack in his other hand! Santa's pack is painted with two fat birds sitting on a bare branch dusted with snow. The base gives the illusion of Santa and the moon floating high above a snowy village with houses, cabins, churches (complete with traditional onion domes), and horse drawn sleighs! AN AMAZING WORK OF ART!! 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 (as he is called in Russia) is made in Sergei Posad, Russia, and is signed by the artist. This Santa measures just over 15 inches tall by 10 inches across by approximately 5 inches from front to back.
TRULY A ONE OF A KIND COLLECTOR'S PIECE TO BE HANDED DOWN FROM GENERATION TO GENERATION!!!
