"Moses the Hungarian", Russian Santa Figurine, s248, 9.5"H
"Moses the Hungarian", 10", art. Viktorov.
This Russian Santa - Ded Moroz is a very interesting piece, because it combines several Russian traditional symbols. One of them is Snegurochka, a grand daughter and main helper of Santa, surrounded by little birds, another one - a Russian bear . The red color of the Santa's gown is mentioned in the majority of Russian fairytales where Ded Moroz is wearing a long red gown in flowers. However initially the robe was blue.
