Santos Love

{Female Form 36" w/bendable arm.....$545}


We love these female forms...and obviously so do many of you as we have always had a hard time keeping them in stock!

Originally used in religious ceremonies, such as wedding processions or funerals, the "Bastadas" (female forms) are often adorned with photos of loved ones and religious trinkets and carried down the streets. Later, they rest atop a fireplace matel or prominant place in the home where they are believed to bring fortune and blessings. These originate from either Spain, Mexico or Thailand.

{Female Form above and below pics: 30" w/wood removable arms....$445}
