The deer are standing in a clump of Birch or Aspen trees in a green meadow next to a flowing stream. The scene on the back is later in the year (or perhaps years later when the doe has grown into a buck) when winter has set in and the trees are stripped of their leaves - SEE CLOSE UP PICTURES BELOW. Santa's cloak is sprayed or dusted with a fine metallic glitter that causes the cloak to sparkle in the light.
Santa has a kind expression on his face and he is holding a walking staff in one hand and a pack in the other which is painted as part of the scene with little snow covered pine trees. This Santa is lacquered so it is easily cleaned and protected. The solid linden wood is dried for almost 2 years before it is carved so it will last a lifetime. Linden wood was once used to make drafting boards because it is so stable once it is properly dried.It does not warp, change shape, or crack and this artistic piece will bring enjoyment for a lifetime! Note: These are not molded or mass produced as are some molded resin Santas from China. All our Russian Santas are one of a kind, unique, and hand carved from Linden Wood and no two are ever identical! This Grandfather Frost (as he is called in Russia) is made in Sergei Posad, Russia, and is signed by the artist. The Santa measures just over 8 inches tall by 3.5 inches wide. THIS SANTA IS THE PERFECT DECORATION FOR A HOME IN THE WOODS OR A MOUNTAIN CABIN.
