One of the 'Saintly Seven' Santos Dolls - our own, exclusive*, SantosCageDoll.com Collection -, this beautiful articulated mannequin is painted a deep ultramarine blue, which complements her Mediterranean complexion. This is a popular color commonly associated with the Virgin Mary. Some say it's because it is the color of the heavens, and others have said that it is because historically it was the richest and most valuable pigment.
She has brown hair, brown eyes, and her hands face upward, with a finger touching the thumb on her right hand.Her body is wood, and her head, feet and hands are resin, all of which have been carefully painted and antiqued. Santa Maria is articulated at the shoulders, elbows, hips and knees. Knees and hips have limited movement, and are jointed only for subtle changes in posing. This is not a seated mannequin, and she is meant to be displayed only while standing on the stand.
Variations occur with each handcrafted 'antiqued' Santos. And as is common with antiques, as well as with this reproduction Santos, there may be a 'split' visible on/in her chest (see photo 2) and/or back - the degree of which may vary per Santo. This is where her neck is attached to the body. Traditionally this area is covered with a dress or rosaries (neither are included).
This Santos can wear the halo or either size of the wings if you choose to purchase the kits, but keep in mind that the stand may interfere (we cannot advise on this). This Santos can wear a 2.75" Jeweled French Star crown,a 2.5" Silver one, and the smaller 2" Silver Crown. See our photos to see how she looks in these!
She stands 25" tall, plus her stand adds another inch.
Shoulder to shoulder - 6.5" wide.
Head circumference - 7 1/2".
Base of stand - 6.75" wide.
You will receive a random Mannequin of our choosing.
