Russian Hand Carved & Painted St. Nicholas / Santa Claus
Up for sale is another gorgeous wooden Russian Santa holding a staff! This is all hand carved wood and hand painted by a Russian artist. His beautiful maroon colored robe is decorated all over. The front has a little girl holding two packages; back is a little boy playing an accordion for a snowman. The wood sculpture is 10" tall and the base measures 5 3/4" x 3 1/2". 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.
