This beautiful hand carved Russian Snowmaiden or Snow Maiden statuette is hand painted by the artist in blues and silver with gold and white highlights. Her cloak is amazingly painted with a lovely pattern! She is bundled up with mittens, a high collar on her cloak and a fur lined cap. Her face is rosy from the cold and she has such a kind, innocent expression on her face. This statue 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 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 statuettes from China. This Snowmaiden (or Snegoorichka as she is called in Russian) is made in Sergei Posad, Russia and is signed by the artist. It measures approximately 7.75 inches tall by just under 4 inches wide.
