May we present the latest (and, alas, last...) additon to our exclusive*, SantosCageDoll.com Collection: The Heavenly Blue Santos Angel with Tin Skirt and wings*! She has quickly become a huge customer favorite!
In her heavenly blue tin skirt this Santos Angel serves as a wonderful centerpiece all season - including of course for the Holidays! This folk art tin skirt Saint stands firmly yet peacefully on her round pedestal. She is a Santos Doll made of wood, resin and tin; all chosen for perfect details! Her brown hair is 'combed', and she has beautiful brown eyes to match - each complementing her beautiful, fair, bisque-like complexion!
Her skirt is a gorgeous blue with a wonderful distressed finish - and her body is painted to match! The tin skirt is carefully 'pleated' and attached to her body. She is articulated at the shoulders and elbows - providing her with limited motion/postures - and her palms are facing up.
*This Santos comes complete with (removable) 'gold' metal wings; see the photos.
Variations occur with each handcrafted 'antiqued' Santos. As is common with antiques, as well as with this reproduction Santos, there may be a 'split' visible on/in her chest and/or back - the degree of which may vary per Santo. See the 2nd and 4th photo for examples. This is where her neck is attached to the body. Traditionally this area is covered with a dress or rosaries (neither are included).
And not only that: She also comes with a FREE petite Santos crown; the perfect little crown these Santos Angels can be seen wearing in various of these photos!
She stands 19" tall plus attached to a 1" wood base - Total 20 inches.
Shoulder to shoulder - 3.25" wide.
Wing span: 7 3/4 ".
Head circumference - 5 1/4".
Base of pedestal - 6" wide.
This Santos mannequin is part of the Santos Cage Doll Collection, which in 2014 was *exclusively available in the US from SantosCageDoll.com and our family of online stores, and shipped worldwide.
Note: Though some of the pictures may show this Santos with milagros/lockets, these are not included.
