Primitive Santos Cage Doll, Tan with Flaming Heart on Chest
love this reproduction cage doll in particular,
because of the extensive work that has been done to make her look like
a proper antique! She stands approximately 22 inches tall. Her cage is wood and her body is resin that has been extensively antiqued in a manner different from any other figure that we carry. She has been created to look as if she is made from wood and plaster. She has 'plaster' on her head, and across her chest, covering
up fragments of a folk style painted red flaming heart. We're not sure if this Santos has been reproduced from a Mary cage figure, or if the artist simply decorated her with a flaming heart as a tribute to Immaculate Heart of Mary.
articulated at the shoulders and elbows. Although she is articulated,
please note that all joints do not always move symmetrically. One elbow
may be stiffer than the other, for example. This is common, as it is
with any hand made object, particularly when created in a vintage style.
This lady has shiny, inlaid eyes that have been painted and then set in to place. The cage's base measures approx. 8.5" in diameter.
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. Read more about this in our picture
sure to check our other Santos (Cage) Dolls, too!)
the above are stock pictures from our studio collection. This sale
is for the doll only; any other items potentially present in our
picture(s) are not included. The various Santos crowns she is wearing in the pictures can be purchased separately in our store.
Your doll will be very, very similar to the lady shown. Please keep
in mind that the arm motion-/posture-capacity of your doll may differ
from (i.e. be more, less, different, or similar to that of)
the doll depicted in these pictures.
Variations occur with each handcrafted piece, particularly when
being ‘antiqued’. This is character, and not a flaw. And since the
dolls are crafted to appear antique in nature, they may include
some of the following: distressed or chipped paint, minor splits
in wood, some cracks, variations in paint shade, variations in joint
resistance, exposed wood in joints, and other artistic process imperfections,
yielding different results on every doll. And, although all dolls
of a same model are remarkably close in appearance, there may be
signs of aging that are not identical to her ’sisters’. Additionally,
dolls are made by various craftsmen and receive different ‘personal
touches’… It’s the beauty of artistic hand made versus robotic machine
