Hand-Carved Russian Santas

Russians love to celebrate holidays! From the winter festivities of the New Year and Orthodox Christmas, to Chanukah and welcoming spring with Maslenitsa blini, there is joy throughout the year for everyone!

These hand-carved Santa figurines are part of a long tradition of wood-carving and folklore in Slavic culture. Known as "Grandfather Frost" in the Russian language, he visits Russian children on New Year's Eve with his granddaughter and aide -- the Snow Maiden, snegurochka. Each of these pieces is hand-carved and hand-painted -- and is sure to liven up your holiday!
