"Pyotr Bagration"

"A beautifully carved Russian Santa from solid linden displaying craftsmanship at its finest.  In the front, Santa's snow-white with blue coat and majestic hat are exquisitely detailed with mother of pearl filigree on an intricately dusty dark blue background of leaves and silver wintry flowers.  The colors of the coat change whimsically when you turn the Santa around.  A striking sight meets your eyes - bold purple and gold with silver colors interweave in a complicated and rich pattern that is nostalgically reminiscent of the clothing warn by the Tzars that ruled Russia in the past.  The Santa holds an ornate staff in one hand, and a partridge in the other.  His face is chiseled to perfection, radiating kindness and good will.  Signed by the renowned artist, Rasskazova, this piece is unique in its imposing stature, the complexity and balance of the work, and the fine hand carving." 20.5H x 13"W x 11"D
