First Winter Sled Ride Santa. This meticulously painted watercolor Santa depicts the joyful play children have in the wintertime snow. Nestled in the scene of a small snowy village, a mother gently guides her son as he delightfully pulls his little sister on a sled. The little girl holds tightly to her doll as she smiles with excitement of a new adventure through the wintery woods. Intricately painted in this scene are bluebirds closely watching the family as they enjoy their day with nature. Santa has a peaceful look as he carries his gold bag accented with a green flowered patch. HIs coat has been carefully painted with reds, golds, greens and burgundys to match his hat, toy bag and walking staff. This piece is symbolic of the unique peace and joy that only the holiday season can bring.
All Russian Santas made for Reasons to Believe are 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.
