Amazingly beautiful, this rare sacred Santos was hand carved and painted with meticulous care by a devoted artist long ago. Not just created for the decorative beauty for churches, convent chapels and private chapels and home altars, these saints are symbols of our love of God. The face of this santos is incredible, I fell in love with this exquisite facial expression, the santos with this level of fine quality work are difficult to come by, most are in museums. This has the exceptional layers of polychrome “encarnación” or flesh-like finish collectors so admire.
Wearing a glorious detailed metal crown with gilt finishing, this is a work of art, a masterpiece of the heart of the artist who created this. The Santos is wearing a few religious medals on a strand of French gold bullion, and is mounted on a wooden stand for display. Shown in a newer glass display case to protect this precious relic for many more centuries, available separately. Divine. He will bring a peaceful presence to your home.
