This charming Santos is green with a hint of blue for dress, as well as cage. She has dark brown hair, carved and painted eyes, and delicately painted eyelashes. She's the perfect color to hold a birds nest with robin's eggs in her cage.
This Santos measures approx. 24 inches tall, and is jointed at the elbows. She is made of a lightly constructed paper mache and wood combination. The joints are movable, but possibly better suited for posing in one or two positions.
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, not a flaw, and is intended to make each Santos uniquely beautiful.
