This beautiful Russian Santa Claus is hand painted by the artist in reds, blues, whites, greens and browns. The scene on the front is a village scene with wooden homes, cabins, a Russian Orthodox Church with it's traditional Onion Dome, a bridge over a river and all surrounded by snow covered trees and bushes. The back of Santa's cloak is painted a bright red with gold and silver accents. Santa is holding a brightly lit lantern in one and and a decorated Christmas tree in the other. (SEE CLOSE UP PICTURES BELOW). This Santa (or Grandfather Frost as he is called in Russia) is lightly lacquered so it is easily cleaned and protected. The solid linden wood is dried for almost 2 years before it is carved. 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 one of a kind, unique and hand carved from Linden Wood so no two are the same!) This Santa is made in Sergei Posad, Russia, is signed by the artist, and measures just over 6.25 inches tall by almost 4.75 inches wide.
