This highly detailed Old World Russian Santa Claus is hand painted by the artist in reds, greens and whites. Santa's cloak is painted with a bright, beautiful design which coordinates with his cap and mittens! The scene on the front of Santa's cloak is that of a sweet little girl playing with the snowman she built and her puppy. The scene on the back of Santa's pack is of two children sledding while being chased by their dog - and on top of that pack are a number of gifts or presents just waiting to be delivered! And down by his side is a mail satchel which is undoubtedly stuffed full of letters from all the good little girls and boys around the world. This Santa 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 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, is signed by the artist and measures just under 13.5 inches tall by 8.25 inches wide.
