This mini Santos primitive style doll is an adorable addition to any collection. Her petite size makes her easy to fit in almost anywhere. She has a very delicate, beautiful face, right down to her tiny carved nose. Her almost 15" tall figure is a carved lightweight wood, and her arms are created in the traditional antique manner of wire arms, covered in fabric. Hands are resin, and possibly so is her head. She's individually hand carved, and hand painted.
Her 11.5" body stands atop a 3.5" wooden ball (for a total of 15 inches), and would be beautiful dressed in a robe or gown. Slip her in between two other dolls, on a bookshelf, or atop a cabinet, as a curious object. We prefer ours up close, where we can admire her intricate features.
Note: This is a new doll, with the appearance of a true antique.
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.
