Here is a another great old world style Santa Claus! This is all hand carved wood and is hand painted by a Russian artist. The front of his suite is decorated with an image of Cinderella in her glass slipper with the fairy godmother. He has a staff in one hand and his bag is over his shoulder. The sculpture is 7" tall and the base is 3 ¾" x 2 ½". It has a "Made in Russia" paper stamp and artist signature on the bottom.
He would be a great addition to your Christmas collection!
FYI: This unique, one of a kind Santa is hand carved and hand painted in Russia. It is signed by the artist. The Feast of St. Nicholas on December 6th was observed in Russia for centuries and St. Nicholas was known as Father Christmas. After the communist revolution, the celebration of the feast was prohibited, and St. Nicholas was transformed into "Ded Moroz", or Grandfather Frost, the Russian Spirit of Winter who brings gifts to children on Christmas Day. These Santas embody the World-Wide Spirit of Santa Claus. This hand carved and hand painted piece is perfect for year-round enjoyment
