This beautiful Russian Angel statuette is hand carved and hand painted by the artist in greens and whites with gold highlighting and is accented with gold glitter. Her cloak is painted with a gorgeous floral pattern called “Abramtsova”. This technique is extremely rare and time consuming. It requires the artist to paint a layer of clear frosted paint then quickly remove a portion of the paint before it is dry. This creates a frosted layer over the previous layer of paint giving an iridescent look. Currently, Natasha, the artist who painted this statuette, is the only artist we know of using the Abramtsova technique. Notice the folds and layers painted on her cloak! This Angel has such a sweet expression on her face and she is holding a brightly lit candle in her hands. SO REALISTIC LOOKING!! This Angel is very 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 this artistic piece will bring enjoyment for a lifetime! (Please Note: These are not molded or mass produced as are some molded resin statuettes from China. All our Russian Santas and statues are one of a kind, unique, and hand carved from Linden Wood so no two are identical!) This Angel is made in Sergei Posad, Russia and is signed by the artist. The wings and candle can be removed for storage. This angel measures just over 11 inches tall with a wingspan of 9.5 inches.
