This fun little Russian Santa Claus is intricately hand carved and hand painted by the artist to enhance details in the face, beard and costume. Notice the sweet expression on his face and the gold pattern and highlights on his red and blue colored cloak, Tsar-style hat, and bag. This Santa is carrying a backpack on his back with snowflakes painted on it. 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 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 6.5 inches tall by 2.5 inches wide.
