SANTA AS A DASHING SWASHBUCKLER!?! I GUESS THIS IS HOW SANTA DELIVERS GIFTS TO ALL THOSE PIRATE CHILDREN AROUND THE WORLD!!
This unbelievable and incredibly life-like looking Russian Santa Claus is intricately hand carved and hand painted by the artist to enhance details in the Santa, the lantern he is holding, and the treasure chest below his booted foot. Santa's cloak and cap are painted in reds and burgundies with an intricate and ornate gold pattern and gold highlighting and accents. The edges of Santa's cap and cloak are painted with a gold paint that reflects the light - THIS STATUE ABSOLUTELY SHIMMERS UNDER THE LIGHT!! Santa's cloak is painted as if it is edged in real Ermine fur - the type of fur that usually edges royal robes. Santa has one foot up on a treasure chest which is probably filled with toys and treats! This statue 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 it is 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 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. The Santa measures approximately 17.25 inches tall by 8 inches front to back and the tree is just under 9.75 inches tall by 5.25 inches wide.
WHAT AN AMAZING WORK OF ART! THIS SANTA CAN BE HANDED DOWN FROM GENERATION TO GENERATION!!
