Russian Santa Riding On A Sleigh - Golden Uzor Santa W/ Snowflake On Bag For Sale
This fun Russian Santa Claus is holding a bag full of treats with a golden snowflake painted on the bag, a lantern and is riding a sled - that almost looks too small to hold him! This statuette is intricately hand carved and hand painted by the artist, T. Makarova in the Golden Uzor Style, where she highlights Santa’s cloak with gold paint giving texture and a very ornate pattern. (See close-up pictures below.) 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. (Note: These are not mass produced molded resin from China. All Russian Santas are one of a kind unique and handcarved from Linden Wood so no two Santas are ever identical.) This Grandfather Frost, as he is called in Russia, is made in Sergei Posad, Russia and is signed by the artist. This nice sized Santa measures approximately 10.5 inches tall by 6.75 inches across.

GOLDEN UZOR PAINTING
This Santa has a special rare type of painting called “Golden Uzor.” Tatyana Makarova, the painter, painstakingly and carefully layers the paint a number of times in order to achieve the thick, raised, golden effect in Uzor painting. It may be difficult to see in the pictures, but it creates a unique look and feel in person. Currently we know of only two painters who are painting the traditional Uzor style on their hand crafted Santas. Tatyana Makarova is one of them. Her Santas are stunning!
