DECORATING WITH SANTOS AND RELIGIOUS ITEMS

Religious statues, mosaics, reliefs and paintings were once used to tell Biblical stories to the churchgoers who were illiterate back in the Dark Ages.  Today, these items have become so collectible that it is very expensive to have a Santos that is over 100 years old.  In addition, most churches are unwilling to sell these items to collectors.  The following are pictures of some magnificent antique Santos as well as images of newly reproduced Santos.

Above: a beautiful antique Santos with a metal crown and vintage hair.  Very rare!

Here is an antique Santos wearing an antique crown.  The hands are very elegant and graceful.

More antique Santos with orignal corwns and metal neck wear.

Incredible eye detailing on this antique Santos.

It is so rare to find a glorious grouping of antique Santos.

The Santos above is a reproduction, but still a really nice creation.

A Santos bust with wonderful eye detailing….yes it is new.

Great facial expression on this reproduction.
