THE PERFECT GIFT FOR COLLECTORS OF SANTAS OR BEARS!! 3 STATUES INCLUDED IN THE ONE PRICE!!
This gorgeous Old World Russian Santa Claus or Grandfather Frost is hand carved and hand painted creating this incredibly realistic looking statuette! Santa's overcoat is painted in burgundies and golds and is edged in gold and trimmed in what looks like fur. (In cold countries real fur is a MUST. Ice, snow, and moisture freezes to synthetic fur preventing the hat or coat from really keeping a person warm. The oils in real fur prevent this freezing thereby keeping a person truly warm. And in places like Siberia or the North Pole, staying warm is a must!) His cloak, overcoat, cap, gloves, boots, and lantern are painted with dots of gold, bronze, and white paint which give a raised or textured feel and it looks like Santa has toys and gifts stuffed into the pockets of his cloak. In one hand Santa is holding a a walking staff with a candle lit, ornately decorated lantern on top of it. In the other hand he is balancing his elaborately decorated pack which, instead of toys, seems to have a sweet little bear peeking his head out. He also has another sweet little bear walking along beside him. Please notice the kind expression on Santa's very realistic looking face and Santa has one booted foot on a stump as he makes his way through a snowy forest. The little tree by his side is painted with snow flakes and pine cones. (SEE CLOSE UP PICTURES BELOW.) This Santa 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 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 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 statue is made in Sergei Posad, Russia and is signed by the artist. The Santa measures approximately 15.75 inches tall (just under 17 inches to the top of his lantern staff) by 6.75 inches wide. The little bear by his side measures 4.45 inches tall by 3.25 inches wide and 6.75 inches back to front. The little Christmas Tree measures just over 5.75 inches tall by 4 inches wide.
THIS STATUARY WILL BE THE TALK OF ALL YOUR HOLIDAY GATHERINGS!! AN ABSOLUTELY AMAZING WORK OF ART TO BE HANDED DOWN FROM GENERATION TO GENERATION.
