Christmas Gifts for The Children - Russian Santa Claus

Christmas Gifts for the Children - Santa is dressed in his red and green Christmas coat with white frosted trim and has a beautiful scene of two children in pure excitement discovering their bag of Christmas treasures in a snowy landscape. They are detailed and portrayed perfectly with wonderful expressions and eyes. As equally beautiful as the scene, Santa's coat and toybag are painted in Christmas colors of red, green and white using a floral pattern and painting technique which is quite rare and time consuming. The artist uses multiple (very thin) layers of paint to create extreme depth, almost like a veil or frost, to soften and give multiple tones. This is all accented by detail of gold and white. Very stunning throughout and Santa has a wonderful face and comforting eyes. This Russian Santa Claus is hand carved from solid linden, also known as either basswood or lime. Once carved and sanded the Santa is meticulously hand painted and finished in extraordinary detail with numerous coats and finally signed or initialed by the artist.
