This Santa is beautifully hand carved and hand painted by the artist to enhance details in the Santa, his beard, his costume, as well as the curlicue and snowflake design painted on his cloak. Santa's cloak is painted in reds, burgundies, golds, and whites. This Santa is holding a golden walking staff with his pack thrown over his shoulder. The pack is painted with white snowflakes and is decorated with gold and white whorls and accents. This statue 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! (Please Note: These are not molded or mass produced as are some molded resin Santas from China. All our Russian Santas are one of a kind, unique, and 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 under 6.5 inches tall by 3.5 inches across.
