American and Russian Santa Artists
The American Santa Claus has become todays most accepted version of the legendary holiday gift giver.
Since pagan times, the winter solstice was a time of celebration. As Christianity spread, the gifts of the Maji to the baby Jesus, became the spirit of Christmas. Each culture has had their gift givers, from the religious St. Nicholas, to magical elves, like our Santa Claus.
Christmas International carries a broad representation of santas and elves from American carvers and doll artists, as well as wonderfully carved and painted santas from Russia. See our American and Russian artists here, and visit our German, Pewter, Smoker, and Nutcracker sections for other selections.
In addition to these wonderful artists, we carry santas from the following:
