Russian Santa/Father Christmas With Victorian Ladies in Winter Scene
We are offering for sale a beautiful solid wood Russian Santa with a big snow white beard, rosy cheeks and nose, and he’s holding a staff! This is hand carved wood that has been hand painted by a Russian artist. This gorgeous Santa is wearing a snow covered robe of green and beige with Victorian ladies in a winter scene on front and back. The wood sculpture is 11" tall, it is signed on the bottom.
If you collect Santas, this would be a great addition to your 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.
