This fun little Russian Santa Claus is intricately hand carved and hand painted by the artist to enhance details in the face, beard, costume and the Russian style cap he is wearing. Notice the sweet expression on his face and the gold pattern and highlights on his bronze and gold colored cloak and bag. This Santa is carrying a blue and gold backpack on his back. SEE CLOSE UP PICTURES BELOW. This Santa 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 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 under 6.75 inches tall by 2.5 inches wide.
