This beautiful young Santos lady is a vintage-style Santos Doll with a light complexion, brown hair, brown eyes, rosy lips, slate-blue color body, and dark-eggplant-color painted sandals.
Her pose depicts Mary, who stood on the globe of the earth, crushing a serpent under her feet, to proclaim Satan and his followers were helpless before her.
The Santos is approx. 19.5" (87cm) tall, in fixed position, and measuring 5" wide at the base, and 4 3/4" from elbow to elbow.
She is a resin reproduction fashioned after the antique European carved Santos; carefully hand crafted, hand painted, and distressed by craftsmen.
While the original dolls are hard to find —not to mention: often damaged, yet expensive—, these meticulously made reproductions have become collectors items in their own right! 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'.
