This fabulous hand carved and hand painted Russian Santa Claus has gorgeous details in the face, beard, costume, and the moon he is sitting on. Santa's cloak is painted in a lovely mauve or burgundy color with white and gold accents as well as gold glitter. Santa's beard is covered with an iridescent glitter making it look as if it is dusted with snow. He is holding his patchwork pack in one hand and a staff (shaped and painted to look like a star-burst) in the other. Santa is sitting in the curve of a friendly moon - which is decorated with gold stars. Santa and the moon are on a base that is painted to look like fat fluffy clouds floating in a blue sky. 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! Please Note: These are not molded or mass produced as are some molded resin Santas from China. This Santa (or Grandfather Frost as he is called in Russia) is made in Sergei Posad, Russia, is signed by the artist, and measures just over 10.75 inches tall (to the top of his staff) by 7.25 inches wide.
