This mini Santos primitive style doll has a very delicate, handsomely carved face, including cheekbones! He stands 16" tall, including his turned wood pedestal. His actual body is approximately 12 inches. The Santos body is a carved lightweight wood, and his arms are created in the traditional antique manner of wire arms, covered in fabric. His hands are resin. He's individually hand carved, and hand painted.
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.
