This village boy is ready for a man's job of splitting wood to heat the home. He looks with determination at the birch log he is about to strike. Sveta Nakonechnaya paints this young lumberjack with charming detail: the fur-lined coat, the decorative peasant shirt, the matching scarf and mittens, and even the snow-specked hat and boots bring to mind Russian village life. Amazing what character is brought from this piece of linden wood!
The young man stands 8.75" tall. Comes with his companion stump with birch log atop, which stands 4.75" tall. Signed by the artist on the bottom.
