The Moscow Ballet's exclusive ‘Father Christmas’ glass globe christmas ornament depicts one of the exquisite scenes from the Great Russian Nutcracker production. Hand painted, this ornament features Father Christmas (Ded Moroz), along with the Snow Maiden (Snegurochka), in their traditional blue and white costumes. The Russian tradition says that Ded Moroz brings chidren presents but unlike the Western Santa Claus he does it at New Year's celebrations and in person. Most often, like in our hand-painted ornament, Ded Moroz (Father Christmas) is shown accompanied by Snegurochka (Snow Maiden) his granddaughter. This is unique because of all traditional gift-givers 'Father Christmas' is the only one protrayed with this type of companion. Our exclusive ornament tells that story in the painting. Every glass globe is equipped with a metal loop and golden string, for hanging purposes. It is packaged in a beautful gift box and is perfect for any Russian art collector, ballet enthusiast or lover of the traditions of Christmas.
