THIS SANTA IS A WORK OF ART THAT CAN BE HANDED DOWN FROM GENERATION TO GENERATION!
This fabulous Russian Santa Claus is hand carved and hand painted by the artist to enhance details in this amazing work of art!! This Santa is painted in greens and golds with a lovely unique style with raised dots of paint and glitter giving a raised pattern to the cloak, cap, and gloves. This process gives a textured feel to Santa's costume. Santa's cloak is also inlaid with an iridescent film which makes the cloak, cap and gloves look as if silver thread is woven into the fabric. The front of Santa's cloak is painted in greens and greys with gold/multi-colored floral designs creating a sash and ornate pattern along the edge. His overcoat is painted in greens and golds with the flowers created in a multitude of iridescent color, golds, tans, whites, and greens. In one hand, Santa is holding an ornately decorated staff which is painted all the way around with raised dots, while in the other hand, Santa is holding a brightly candle-lit lantern. This statue is lacquered so it is easily cleaned and protected. The solid linden wood is dried for almost 2 years before it is carved. 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 mass produced molded resin from China. All Russian Santas are one of a kind, unique, and hand carved from Linden Wood so no two Santas are ever identical.) This statuette, is made in Sergei Posad, Russia is signed by the artist and measures approximately 20.5 inches tall by 10 inches wide.
