This Russian Santa above is a favorite of many collectors because of the many and varied hand-carved details all over the Russian Santa. Many collectors of the Russian
Santas enjoy the variances among the different figures as depicted by both the artists and by the master woodcarvers. A collector may have Russian Santas of various
sizes and stances. Some of the Father Frost figures are slightly hunched over while still others stand upright or lean on a staff. There are certain carvers who like to seat
the Santa on an animal, such as a polar bear or a reindeer. The most popular carving seems to be the Santa with his head slightly tilted, holding a staff and possibly a sack
over his shoulder. The Russian artist takes over after the carver finishes his creation. The artist breathes life into the carved wooden figure through the finely painted
details in the facial features and the depiction of hand painted scenes on the front and/or back of the cloak. These amazing Russian Santas are truly beautiful to behold
and to share with friends and family.
These two hand carved, hand painted Russian Santas are very different in both the carvings and the design by the Russian artist. The
most impressive part of the first Father Frost figure is the realistic face (both in its carving and painting) and the hand-painted scene on the
back of the cloak. The detail on this Russian Santa is very finely hand- painted by the Russian artist with the fine red cloak, facial coloring
and picture on the reverse side of the cloak. The Russian Santa also carries a staff in one hand. The Santa's facial expression is demure
and sincere. His blue eyes gaze out from a finely detailed and carved face. Signed by the Russian artist.
The second hand carved figure is very detailed by the master woodcarver! This Russian Santa holds a sack above his head and has a
very merry expression on his face. His blue eyes are twinkling and very engaging. This Santa is very large and beautiful!

centerpiece for the holidays or to display throughout the year? The intricate
and detailed hand carvings are amazing to see. The Russian artist has lightly
painted the face with just enough paint to give the face a realistic look. The
