"First gifts of Christmas - A wonderful Santa Claus carving with beautifully painted holiday scenes on both the front and back. Two children await their first gifts of Christmas from Santa's toybag, and on the back three children are having fun creating a very happy snowman figure, a little puppy watches. Santa holds a lantern in one hand and has a toybag by his side. He stands on a carved, tree-like stump. This Russian Santa made for Reasons to Believe is hand carved from solid linden, also known as either basswood or lime in various parts of the world. Once carved and sanded the Santa is hand painted and finished in extraordinary detail with numerous coats and finally signed or initialed by the artist."
