This fantastic Russian Snowmaiden (or Snow Maiden) statue is hand carved and ornately hand painted by the artist creating this amazing decoration! Her cloak, face, gown and hat are all meticulously hand painted. This Snowmaiden has a peaceful, solemn expression on her lovely face. Her gown is hand painted in white, burgundies, and golds with gold, white, and bronze accents! This lovely lady looks like she is all bundled up in layers for the cold, Siberian winter. On her head she is wearing a fur rimmed hat with ear muffs. She is wearing an overcoat over her decorated gown. The cap, gloves, overcoat, and gown are decorated with dots of paint (white, gold, brown, bronze) which look like beads or precious stones are sewn into the fabric. The bottom edge of her gown and the back of her overcoat are painted to look like they are edged in fur - and in those cold Siberian and Arctic winters, faux fur will not do! The oils in real fur keep the moisture from the air and from our breath from freezing on it! THIS STATUE IS TRULY STUNNING! This statuette 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. (Note: These are not mass produced molded resin from China. All our Russian Santas and statues are one of a kind, unique, and hand carved from Linden Wood so no two are ever identical.) This beautiful statue is made in Sergei Posad, Russia, is signed by the artist and this statue measures just over 15.75 inches tall by approximately 7 inches wide.
THIS STATUE IS TRULY A COLLECTORS' PIECE TO BE PASSED DOWN FROM GENERATION TO GENERATION!!!
