"A timeless Christmas tradition is depicted in this beautifully formal Santa Claus carving with nutcracker staff. Santa has a royal look about him, painted in deep red with accents of gold and pearl throughout. Woodburned detail, an extremely time consuming art, adds dramatically to the depth and striking features found everywhere, covering much of his coat, his hat, elegant sash and satchel at his side. Other added elements of detail are the gold leaf on all the intricate designs, the pocket watch carried in his hand and certainly the nutrcacker perched on his staff. His face and eyes are striking, yet very comforting. Wooden Russian Santas made for Reasons to Believe are hand carved from solid linden, also known as either basswood or lime. Once carved and sanded the Santa is then hand painted and finished in individually unique detail with numerous coats of paint and sealer and finally signed or initialed by the artist."
