This beautiful Russian Santa Claus (or Grandfather Frost as he is known in Russia) has scenes painted on both the front and back of the statuette. This Santa is hand carved and hand painted by the artist to enhance details in the face, beard and costume giving an old world look to this Santa. His cloak is painted in reds with white and gold curly-cues and gold accents. The scene on the front of Santa's costume is that of a couple of adorable children cuddling with Santa who has arrived with his pack full of gifts. On the back we see three children building a snowman. This Santa is holding a staff in one hand and has his toy sack on the ground by his side. This statuette is 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 mass produced molded resin from China. All Russian Santas are one of a kind, unique, and hand carved from Linden Wood so no two Santas are ever identical.) This Grandfather Frost is made in Sergei Posad, Russia and is signed by the artist. This Santa measures just over 13 inches tall to the top of his staff by 6.75 inches wide.
