This 8" Father Frost carving is wrapped in a finely detailed winter landscape painting. Elvira Besedovskaya, painting in Sergiev Posad, Russia, brings to life the Russian countryside on the contours of this Christmas figurine. The starry night sky above the village finds itself on Santa's sack, while the villagers' cabins, fences, and even haystacks wrap Santa in a blanket of snowy landscape that you'll find truly inspired, and so very Russian. His red hat and mittens remind us this wayfarer is on a sacred mission of bringing gifts of joy around the world, and his staff helps him along. Signed by the artist on the bottom. Made of linden wood. A real treasure!
