Santos Cage Doll: The Butterfly Queen

I've been doing some research on creating art dolls and Santos Cage Dolls in particular. I've always had a love for them but just recently learned that the Santos dolls take their name from the Spanish word for Saint. While learning more about their history I fell deeper in love with them.

This first Santos Cage Doll titled , 'The Butterfly Queen' is #1 in a collection of art dolls I'm hoping to be creating. I'm not sure how many will be created, the size, the medium, etc it's all a work in progress. This is a new path, which as an artist is one of my many creative paths I (we) tend to be navigating and learning from all at the same time. I hope you enjoy this first 6 3/8 inch tall art doll. I used wood, faux gems, washi tape, acrylic, napkins, & silver metal butterflies she holds in her hands.Thanks bunches for taking the time to have a look. Feel free to post, pin, tweet, share :)
