This lovely hand carved and hand painted Russian Santa Claus is painted in reds and golds with white and blue highlights and a winter scene painted on the front of his cloak. The scene is that of a cold, icy stream meandering through the Siberian countryside with snow covered trees. The stream is flowing past a Russian Orthodox Church with blue roofs and traditional golden Onion Domes. Santa has a kind look on his face and is holding a golden walking staff in his hand. (SEE CLOSE UP PICTURES BELOW). 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. (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 each one is a unique piece!) This Grandfather Frost (as he is called in Russia) is made in Sergei Posad, Russia. This Santa is signed by the artist and measures just under 6.75 inches tall by 3.5 inches wide.
