This beautiful hand carved Russian Santa Claus is hand painted by the artist in reds, greens, golds and whites with white and gold highlights. Santa has a sweet and kind expression on his face! He is holding an ornately decorated staff which matches his cloak and has a gold toy pack over his shoulder. The pack has a beautiful green, gold and white floral pattern painted on it. This Santa is painted with a unique floral style called “Abramtsova”. This particular Santa is painted in bright reds and deeper reds and his highlighted with gold glitter. This Santa has a very detailed Nativity scene painted on his cloak. The scene shows the Holy Family - Joseph, Mary, Baby Jesus laying in a straw-lined manger. There are three doves and a sweet little lamb looking on. 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 properly dried. It does not warp, change shape, or crack and these artistic pieces 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 and is signed by the artist. Santa measures just under 11.25 inches tall by 6.25 inches wide.
THIS SANTA IS AN AMAZING WORK OF ART TP BE PASSED DOWN FROM GENERATION TO GENERATION!
