She is rightly one of our most popular Santos. She has dark eyes, a Mediterranean complexion, and her own set of removable wire drop earrings. She's 23.5 inches tall from head to toe, and her stand (included) adds another inch. From hand to hand, she is 6.5 inches wide. This Santos mannequin is a creamy blue with light chocolate accents, and she has espresso colored sandals painted on.
She's jointed at the shoulders, elbows, hips and knees. Her arms are movable, but they won't pose in an upright position (although this can be engineered by wedging a little bit of paper in the back of the elbow joint). The stand holds onto her waist, and one of her legs is a bit 'stiffer', to help support her standing in the upright position. Keep in mind that while she is jointed at the hips and knees, she can not sit - But you can totally remove her from the stand if you wish and have other means of holding her upright. :)
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. As with true antiques, variations occur among handcrafted Santos, particularly when being 'antiqued' and 'aged'. This can for example include the occasional small 'crack'/'split' in the material, 'worn' spots, or other 'perfect imperfections'. This is character, not a flaw -and makes each Santos uniquely beautiful and charming.
