Here is a beautiful example of Russian folk art from G. DeBrekht. This figure is called "Butterfly Wishes Santa" and features a colorful Santa with a delicate butterfly sitting on his shoulder, and he is carrying a staff in one hand. His blue robe is designed with small butterflies flying among star-shaped flowers. All of the designs you see on both sides of the resin-based Santa are hand-painted. The detail and hand painting is extraordinary.
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.
"Butterfly Wishes Santa" was released in 2005 and was retired the next year. This Santa has such a cute face!
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.
