Here is a beautiful example of Russian folk art from G. DeBrekht. This resin figure is called "Father Christmas with Girl" and features a colorful Santa with a small girl and holding a heart in his hand. The detail and hand painting is extraordinary. Santa's robe has intricate designs and is accented with sparkles.
The Santa is from the Derevo Series, the items of which are first carved in wood and then a perfect mould of the original is made. Afterwards, they hand cast a limited edition piece made of stone resin. Each resin piece is individually hand painted exactly like the original. On the bottom is information about the piece, plus a hand numbered limited edition number. This figure is #0931 in the limited edition.
"Father Christmas with Girl" was released in 2004 and was retired the next year.
This Santa is in perfect new condition, and will come in the original box with a certificate of authenticity.
DeBrekht designs are highly collected and this Santa is referenced in the Collectibles Information Bureau Index & Market Guide for Limited Edition Collectibles, 2008 edition.
If you collect any of the DeBrekht Russian designs, this is a great addition to a collection.
