THIS GORGEOUS SANTA STATUE IS A WORK OF ART TO BE PASSED DOWN FROM GENERATION TO GENERATION!!
This amazing Russian Santa Claus is hand carved and hand painted by the artist creating this stunning Christmas decoration. This kindly Santa has the sweetest expression on his face as he rides his polar bear to deliver the toys and gifts in his pack! His cloak is painted all the way around in bright colors and it looks like various animals have hitched a ride with him! On the front are birds and a duck while on Santa's pack is a friendly owl. Catching a ride on the back end of the polar bear are two snow white foxes while a third is snuggled up with Santa for the journey. The back of Santa's pack has three Red-Whiskered Bulbuls sitting in a tree with red Rowan berries. There is another duck catching a ride on the polar bear's other front leg. All of our polar bear friend's feet are covered with flowers as if he has been walking through a field of wildflowers! Santa's cloak is painted bright red and decorated with flowers and snowflakes. He is wearing a traditional Russian scarf which hangs over his shoulders and down his back and is sitting on an ornately decorated blanket lined with little gold bells. WHAT A FABULOUS STATUE! SEE CLOSE UP PICTURES BELOW. This 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 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. This Santa (or Grandfather Frost as he is called in Russia) is made in Sergei Posad, Russia and is signed by the painter as well as the carver. This unbelievable Santa measures over 11.25 inches tall by approximately 13 inches from the tip of the polar bear's nose to the back of his leg and 6.25 inches wide.
TRULY A WORK OF ART!!
