This amazing little Russian Santa Claus is a serious skier / skater as he glides across the frozen ice. Santa's suit is painted in reds with white accents, gold appliques, and is highlighted with gold paint and silver glitter. He has a very sweet and serious expression on his face and his hands are clasped behind his back as he is carries a blue pack on his back. His skis (or skates) and boots are painted to look as if they are splattered with snow! (SEE CLOSE UP PICTURES BELOW.) This Santa is very 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! (Please Note: These are not mass produced molded resin from China. All our Russian Santas are one of a kind, unique, and hand carved from Linden Wood so no two Santas are ever identical.) This Grandfather Frost, as he is called in Russia, is made in Sergei Posad, Russia and is signed by the artist. This nicely sized Santa measures approximately 4.75 inches tall by 3 inches across by 4.75 inches from the tip of Santa's nose the the back of his ski/skate.
PLEASE NOTE THAT SANTA'S SKIS / SKATES CAN BE REMOVED FOR STORAGE.
