Santas for sale #27
Hand carved, hand painted Russian Santa holding large lantern in one hand and staff in his other hand.  This beautifully hand crafted
Father Frost figure is carved entirely by hand from a large, single piece of linden wood that has been aged for approximately two years
or more.  The master carver has finely honed the face to create a merry, smiling face.  The Santa's beard is full and flows over his
cloak.  The scene that the Russian artist painted depicts the countryside at sunrise on a winter's day.  The villager in the sled is going off
to a day's work over the snow-covered roads.  The artist has painted the back of the cloak with a floral design in reds and gold.   The
lantern in the hand of the wooden
Russian Santa is removable.  The Santa stands 12 inches tall and 6 inches across the base.

custom order of wooden carved Russian Santa
Custom Order:   Steps that occur in a custom order are outlined below.  This custom order shows the finished carved
Russian Santa form.  The customer had an idea in mind about a particular type of Santa figure and submitted several pictures
to me of the forms that he thought he would like carved.
The next step occurred when I emailed the pictures to the artisans in Russia.  While we both waited, we weren't sure that the idea
could be created into a Santa.  The master carver took all the pictures and then did create a form that outdid our expectations.  As you
can see, this
Russian Santa figure is absolutely beautiful.  It's very unique and special to this customer.  The following step after the
carver finishes his work is for the Russian artist to start to think of ideas on the form.  The artist takes over where the master carver
left off and finishes the on the form.  The artist takes over where the master carver left off and finishes the  figure so that it  figure so
that it
Russian Russian comes to life!  It takes great artistic talent to make the face and skin tones lifelike and to paint some of the
miniature comes to life!  It takes great artistic talent to make the face and skin tones lifelike and to paint some of the miniature scenes on
the cloak that are constraints of the amount of space available on the carved wooden
Russian Santa.      
The last step is the customer's final approval.  Without that, no sale is considered final.  The ultimate goal of my company is to achieve
total customer satisfaction and to add a figure of lasting value and enjoyment to his or her collection.
