Santas for sale #34
Examples of various wooden Russian Santas hand crafted by Russian master carvers and artists.  Each Father Frost figure is
a work of art and is the artistic expression of the carver and the artist.  The artist must make hundred or thousands of brush
strokes to complete each form.  It requires great skill and patience to complete all the detailed art work on each wooden
Russian Santa.   The carver also must possess a high degree of talent and artistic ability to carve the form with such
expressive faces and hand carved details.  The carver takes an entire solid piece of linden wood that has been properly aged
for at least two years.  At this point, the wood is ready to be carved into a form.  The carver must use special tools for this
process and also must be very careful when carving the fine parts on the face and beard.
