The fabulous St. Nicholas figurines featured in this book all began as a 14" unpainted wooden figure. Each was meticulously hand carved in Russia by skilled artisans working in traditional Russian folk style. Whether painted with realism or strokework, animals or landscapes, lavish or simple, the result is a celebration not only of the legend of St. Nicholas, but also a celebration of the beauty and diversity of decorative painting.
