Santos Cage Dolls Figures By Artist Eric Cortina Set Of 3 Magnificent Rare For Sale

Santos Cage Dolls Figures By Artist Eric Cortina Set Of 3 Magnificent Rare

These are very unique pieces. They will look great as a Holiday Display. Available for a limited time only. I looked for days all over the internet trying to find three matching pieces.I have found they were made in the Phillipines for Eric Cortina who makes the bases for them. And it’s nearly impossible to find them in a male figure, they are usually female.I'm not sure if he is still making these. I do know that hehascreatedhis own line of Christmas ornaments that have been featured at stores such asBERGDORF GOODMAN & Barney's New York.

They are in extraordinary shape. They have Glass eyes with their features very intact. The arms have not been moved much.Theyare from a high end boutique. Adorned with jewelry or they can be made very festive for the holidays.

They were originally drab and have been painted the bronze and crowns were purchased for their heads.

The tallest measures 48 inches high.The tallest has a slight crack in his head which adds to his uniqueness. The second tallest is 41 inches high and the shortest is 26 inches high.

“Cage” dolls go as far back as the 17thcentury.Santos were carved by priests. Fashion dolls were given as gifts to royalty so they could display the latest fashions. I have read that Santos Cage Dolls were dressed up elegantly in crowns and gowns used for processions and shrines.The expressions on these dolls were meant to be loving and thoughtful yet very pious. These have a serene look. These are art pieces and you will get compliments. I would like to sell them together as to find three similar pieces is difficult.

Each item in the hand carved wood collection makes a beautiful accent or statement piece in a home. The designs are hand carved and finished using paints and techniques that give each piece its own unique quality and aged appearance.

HAND CARVED SANTOS COLLECTION from Eric Cortina's website

Each piece is an individual work of art combining the talents of expert wood carvers and Eric’s own hand finishing.

Santos, originally Spanish for saints, are usually smaller statues that were used for processionals or in private home chapels. These wooden figures have simple frameworks since they were covered and dressed in elaborate costumes and wigs for each feast day or religious holiday. The Madonna was the most revered, and many variations of her image created.

For the Eric Cortina Santos Collection, the process begins in the Philippines where the European art of carving Santos and religious objects has been passed down for many generations. Artists start with Eric’s original design and hand carve each figure piece out of mahogany. A different expert carver then creates the head and hands using softer wood. Every piece is unique and has its own personality which is displayed in the carving of face and glass eyes.

After each piece is carved, it is entirely covered in gesso which provides a surface for the various layers of paint used in Eric’s finishing process. They are then packed, crated and shipped to the Cortina studio.

The painting process begins with Eric applying 2 to 3 individual base colors and then stains to the body that gives the piece an aged appearance. The heads and hands are then given special attention with additional layers of paint and stain to give a lifelike look and the appearance of aged enamel paint. The Santos is then sanded and hand distressed making each piece unique.
