We are proud to offer this extremely rare very hard to find museum piece: a Life Size Santos Madonna or cage doll from the early 1700-1750's Madonna virgin of sorrows, beautiful santos figure in carved and polychrome wood. these are very hard to find figures, they were usually ordered by the upper bourgeoisie that required them for their private chapels.

She comes in 2 parts. the bust can be separated from her "skirt" sort of speech. the bust is attached with the under body by still the original iron hooks, this hook is also present on the left arm, that particular hook keeps the arm in a certain position to hold baby Jesus. as you can see in the picture on this hand there is a wooden pin, this pin was there to secure that baby. the baby is not available anymore.

Her face is so beautiful, she has a stunning expression with real glass eyes and pierced ears,

This Santos Cage Doll comes from Italy and is still in really perfect condition considering this one is around 300 years old. just a little chunk is missing on her hips.

Under the majesty of silk dresses, crowns, symbols and other attributes made of gold or silver, these images hide a primitive, coarse and disproportionate skeleton of wood, which is simply irresistible.

This is a real museum piece for the serious collector, the accessories shown in the pics are not included.

Size: Height: 62.2 inch
