Santas for sale # 32
This large and magnificent hand carved Russian Santa has a wonderfully painted scene on the back of the cloak of the
Russian countryside in winter with the gathering at the market.  The Father Frost figure has a hand painted scene of beautiful
little Russian children dressed in traditional folklore costumes.  The back of the cloak is painted with great detail in the design.  
The face of the Russian Santa is exquisitely carved by hand by the master carver.   The face on this Father Frost is very
beautiful; look at his rosy cheeks and lifelike expression.    The Russian master carver and the artists have also created two
other Russian Santas that are displayed on this website.  You can view decorating ideas for the holidays.     
This amazing wooden Russian Santa in the photo directly above is entirely carved by hand and painted by hand in
Russia, in Sergiev Posad.  The artist chooses the blank forms from the master carver and then decides which theme
or pictures to paint on the form.  The artist has created a huge Father Frost in the wintry landscape of the Russian
countryside.  The artist then puts a very light matte finish over the paintings which further enhances their beauty.  
This piece is a real work of art and has so many paintings on it that you can look at it for quite a while!   Each piece of
solid linden wood is artfully hand crafted into these beautiful
Russian Santas.
