This quaint Russian Santa Claus is hand carved and hand painted in reds, blacks, whites, silver and golds. Santa is wearing a tall cap and both his cap and cloak are accented with gold and silver paint and glitter. Santa has a sweet expression on his face, a precious little bird in his hand, and has a toy sack on the ground in front of him! 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 our 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 over 8.75 inches tall by 3.75 inches wide.
