Wonderful Hand Painted Scenic Russian Santa Claus Polar Bear Reading Story #9325:
This fantastic hand carved Russian Santa Claus is hand painted in blues, reds, yellows and a multitude of other colors. WHAT AN INCREDIBLY DETAILED SANTA!! The scene on the front of Santa's cloak is that of a polar bear reading a bedtime story to two sleeping children - and notice Santa peering in through the window. Santa is holding a beautiful walking staff in one hand and a treasure chest in the other! (SEE CLOSE UP PICTURES BELOW). This Santa is lightly lacquered so it is easily cleaned and protected and is carved out of Linden wood - you can clearly see the wood grain through the paint on the back of the Santa. 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 artist.The Santa measures just over 11.75 inches tall by 6 inches wide.THANK YOU FOR VISITING Gr8RussianStuffSATISFACTION 100% GUARANTEED OR YOUR PURCHASE PRICE REFUNDED
