The 3 Things You Must Agree to Before Being Cast on Fixer Upper

How Would You . . .

There's something so sweet about this early 19th century Spanish Colonial Cage Santo ($7500). It features the original boat shaped cage base, inset glass eyes, articulated arms that are jointed at the shoulders and elbow, tiny hair eyelashes, and a silver crown, and stands almost two feet tall.

How could you integrate this Spanish Colonial Cage Santo into your home? Where would you put it? How would you cover up the cage? Or would you? Would you use it to display something? Or is this Santo too religious for you to display? Tell me by commenting below!

I love her; she's incredible and I wouldn't cover up her cage. Although, Spanish Colonial this Santo looks like she was crafted in Italy. Feralwoman has two beautiful Santos that are similar in face and color (no cages) to this piece (they were crafted in Italy); they are exquisite. I would proudly display her on a mantel; she needs to be the star of the show, of the mantel, but someplace where she is not in danger of being knocked off or where she can get broken.Additionally, she can fit into any period of design. While my house is Victorian, it is by no means period and features art from many different styles and time periods. That is the beauty of having an eye that beholds beauty that is different and unusual. It can make for an interesting room. I can't wait to hear how you have decided to display this piece! Please keep me posted.

It seems like I want to put everything in the garden or use them with plants. I would use a plant that grew as a vine and wind the stalks through her skirt.

cover the cage with a poofy skirt and put it on top of the china hutch to reside over the formal dishware as queen.
