Male Santos are a fairly rare find for us! We love this figure - he has a sweet expression, an interesting posture, and unique painting.
He is fair skinned, with rosy cheeks and dark painted hair with a friar's tonsure. His body is tan, with lower legs in a darker shade (we love that!), and has textured 'trim' around the front of the chest. He stands approximately 20 inches, and is atop a brown, double paned base.
He is jointed at his shoulders and elbows, but has very limited movement. Doll is better posed in the position shown. He is permanently attached to the base at his feet. He is made of a wood pulp-resin composition.
Your doll will match beautifully with antique decor, vintage decor, religious relics, shabby chic, or Italian, Spanish, French, South American, Central American decor.
Fashioned after the antique European Santos, they are carefully hand crafted. To make the hand painted doll unique, the craftsmen distress it; picking & choosing from a range of faux aging techniques. Variations occur with each handcrafted piece, particularly when being 'antiqued'. This is character, and not a flaw.
All photos are from our studio collection. Your doll will be very, very similar to the saint displayed.
