Santos Love

One of my new (somewhat guilty) pleasures is Santos cage dolls; so called because most of them have cages for legs.

I find them so evocative and mysterious...as though they have hidden worlds inside, as do we all.  They were originally Spanish saint carvings, but these are all inexpensive reproduction ones.


Adding new bits and bobs to them is part of the fun, and a convenient place to put things I've made recently.  They genially watch over my art room from the fireplace mantle.
