This stunning gold colored Russian Santa Claus is hand carved and hand painted in tans and golds, with gold and white highlights and accents. The artist has painted this Santa using a metallic paint which causes the Santa to reflect and glow under the lights. Santa is holding a gold and white angel in his arms. This angel's gown is painted with metallic, reflective paint causing her gown to glow and the expression on her face is kindly and sweet. In Santa's other hand he is holding a beautiful walking stick decorated to match his cloak. Notice the sweet expression on Santa's face and the sincere look in his eyes. (SEE CLOSE UP PICTURES BELOW.) 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 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 approximately 14.25 inches tall by just over 6.25 inches wide.
