White Santos Figure

The White Santos Figure is a reproduction Santos Doll turned into a one of a kind art piece
Adorned with vintage French crochet skirt, beads, veil cape and tiara
Denise also added a light that gives off a gorgeous glow

We took this lovely lady over to Cedros yesterday. Denise has been working on her for quite some time and selling some pieces over the weekend at AOC inspired her to complete this White Santos Figure and get it into the booth. It's been a fun creative process working with these reproduction santos figures because they are like a blank canvas and you're able to play around with them- drilling holes, gluing, tweaking and transforming. It's interesting because santos figures I adorn are simple- a crown, a cross necklace- pretty predictable and basic. However you know it's one of Denise's when it lights up, has gorgeous bling and lots and lots of tulle. She and I are often opposites when it comes to design and yet we have so much fun working and creating together. She is up in LA today at the docs- still working on her health and healing path and I couldn't be more proud of her :)

Denise loved this assembled piece she created and I know it was hard for her to part with it-
I feel a bit bad because this Angel Santos Figure and the large birdcage SOLD within
a couple of days- I think we are supposed to feel good when we make a sale- right?
9 times out of 10 we are a little sad to see it go
