Santas for sale #25
Father Frost figure with tree and sack
Just gaze upon this intricately hand carved, hand painted Russian Santa to notice all the special details:  the removable tree in
one hand, the very large sack with the angels, and the paintings all around the cloak in a circular pattern.   The master carver
has certainly created a Father Frost figure that is exceptionally captivating.  Imagine the carver creating this
Russian Santa
figure out of a single piece of linden wood.  The linden wood has been aged for two or more years before the carver can even
use the piece.  Notice the finely carved details in the face of the Russian Santa.  His expressive eyes and wistful look evoke
memories of a long trek through the snow to deliver the presents for all of the children.  The artist has thoughtfully painted
scenes on the front of the cloak of children frolicking in the snow while building a snowman.  It is a cold winter day in the
Russian countryside and you can see the snowflakes falling down.  This incredible wooden
Russian Santa would be a great
addition to any collection.

The artisans and craftspeople of Russia maintain traditions and old world methods of producing the most beautifully hand made items for
collectors!   On this page you can view several different pieces of hand made Russian art work.  The magnificent and highly sought after wooden
Russian Santa is entirely made by hand and begins the process with the proper ageing of the linden wood in single pieces over a period of a few
years.  After this process is completed the master carver can take over and begin his artistic journey with the piece of solid wood.  The carer
typically creates a figure that has  a removable staff in one hand and a sack hoisted over his shoulder or by his feet.  The wooden
Russian Santa
always has a long flowing and wide beard that is intricately carved.  As you notice the facial features look for finely detailed carvings for the
nose, mouth and eyes.  When the artist takes over for the hand painting of the Father Frost figure, he or she begins the process of making the
Santa come to life.  The eyes are usually very expressive and blue in color, the cheeks are rosy from the outdoors, and the
Russian Santa has a
cap or hat on his head.  The artist then chooses the color scheme for the cloak and may then add a picture or scene from the countryside in the
winter or from the Russian fairy tales.
