Description - Celebrate St. Nicholas by Peggy Harris

The fabulous St. Nicholas figurines featured in this book all began as a 14-inch unpainted wooden figure. Each was meticulously hand carved in Russia by skilled artisans working in traditional Russian folk style. C. DeBrekht of Russia commissioned these figures specifically for the Decorative Arts Collection to present in this innovative collaboration. Whether painted with realism, strokework, landscapes or animals, be they 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.
