Fine Russian Wood-Carved Santa

Special Price $179.99 Regular Price $398.00
In her workshop in Moscow, Nadeshda begins each Father Christmas sculpture by meticulously hand-carving his shape from hand-selected basswood, made exclusively for Uno Alla Volta. She then brings each Santa figure to life with an exquisitely hand-painted face and robe adorned with cheery, colorful details. Each sculpture, a limited edition of 75, is unique; expect subtle differences in the paintings - all, however, use the same color palette. Each Father Christmas is masterfully handcrafted, one at a time, from the hearts and hands of the artisan. Sculpture measures approx. 7.5in. tall.

Handmade goods have cultural significance in almost every subculture and financial class. While the upper echelon may delight in the exclusivity of an object, crafting culture permeates the trendy shops of modern-day, millennial Brooklyn, and led the grassroots, ultra-feminist Riot Grrrl movement of the early 1990s. From punk musicians to polished socialites, an appreciation for handcrafted, one-of-a-kind wares is a common thread that connects us to our humanity. This work reminds us that our fingers can do so much more than just operate machines. It connects us to our cultures, our ancestors, our neighbors, and even strangers from faraway places, just through placing a single object between our palms.
