Rated 5 out of 5 by GVSilLake Marvelous piece
I also was hopping to get it for about two years, so, I finally got it. My Santos with wings is absolutely beautiful. I was hopping to get it for Christmas, but arrived almost two months after...its ok, I will keep her as my permanent home decoration all the year. By the way, she is at the entrance of my house, and my visitors got the feeling of being more welcome :) I get a lot of complements, Thank you Ballard Desings
ps. the artist that made her, did a great job. The shipping, fantastic, well packaged.

Like most of the reviews....1st look at her in person is breathtaking!!! Just more than I expected. Amazing. I did have a slight bit of problem with the halo staying on. Found out if you slightly bend the bottom part in more of an oval, it fits better. Did add a tad bit of clear tape behind just in case. No biggie......She is just beautiful!!! Love it...Thanks Ballards for such a beautiful find.

This angel is spectacular!!! I debated about buying her and I am so glad I did. She is very large and commands attention the moment you walk into the room. I put her out on December 1 and leave her out through Valentines Day. Beautiful and serene face, she is truly amazing!

Rated 4 out of 5 by HappyMom191 Not quite what I expected, but I like it.
Her dress is a little more blue-ish than it looks in the picture, at least on my computer. That was a plus for me, as I thought she was going to be less colorful. It does seem a little misleading that metal is not listed in the materials, as her skirt is definitely some kind of metal. Overall, I like her, and I like that her wings and halo are removeable.

It is exactly like the photo and just what I wanted. She sits on the piano year round. She is not just a Christmas angel!

Rated 5 out of 5 by xmas12 Angel Wings
This Angel is very beautiful & tall. Great combination's of wood & metal. Her face is nicely done & sometimes painted faces look comical but not on her's. I am very happy I ordered her finally as I have looked at her for a couple of years.
Only problem I found was her Halo--as the ring to go around her head wasn't quite big enough to sit straight but a touch of hot glue helped that problem.

Rated 4 out of 5 by donnamo beautiful and stunning piece
would have given 5 stars except for the fact that the arms DO NOT stay up!!!! description says the arms articulate ..... then shouldn't they bend at the elbow. the arms just hang down. all the same, the piece is beautiful. it is very tall and the face is heavenly! hope this helps.

This product is heavenly! I love this Santos, the minute you see her you love her. She is quite striking and serenely lovely and can be displayed all year. Everyone who comes into my home notices her right away.
I also purchased one for my son and daughter-in-law and one for my cousin and his wife. Of course, they love her and get positive compliments just like I have. Outstanding quality as well as appeal, couldn't be happier...Vicki

This item is lovely, and I plan to enjoy displaying it year-round. The skirt is made of a crimped metal rather than wood or resin, it is done well and seems to give the piece more of an antique look. I am considering purchasing a medici capital to use as a riser for the santos. I made the purchase during the sitewide 15% reduction & free shipping sale.

I got my Santos angel as a Christmas gift to myself.
She came right before the big day and we opened her on Christmas Day.
She is different and I love her tall size. However, she's alittle more "old fashion" than I thought, like a doll out of the 1800's.
Nonetheless, she adorns my living room now but, after some thought, I think she'll be more fitting in my rustic mountain house.

Rated 5 out of 5 by McSly Had to have this beautiful lady!
Had to have this lovely lady for Christmas, but if I had been a little more patient I could have saved some $$. She makes quite a statement, and I will use her year round. I was concerned when a previous reviewer said her face/head was plastic, but I didn't find that to be the case. She was packaged very well, and arrived in perfect condition.

I just received my Santos Angel. She is absolutely beautiful with the most serene expression on her face. I wanted to buy her last year, but felt that I could not spend that much money. This year I was still in love with her so when she went on sale with free shipping, I ordered her. I am so glad I did. I love angels and will leave her out all year. I am so pleased! She arrived well packed and in perfect condition. Thank you Ballard!

This was a gift for my sister. When it was delivered, I was surprised to see the large size of the box. I had purchased another Santos doll from Ballard which was smaller. My sister was delighted with her! She loves the larger size and the removable wings & halo.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sycamore Delicate facial features. Definitely an eye-catching piece.
The Santos was more than I expected. It was taller, and the facial features were more detailed / delicate than I had thought. It was an anniversary gift and my daughter and son-in-law loved it.

I couldn't be happier with this product. She is beautiful and perfect in every way. Her simplistic design is what draws you in, the size is wonderful and the coloring blends with most anything. She is definitely a keeper...

Rated 2 out of 5 by saanengirl cool look, poor quality, not as described
This angel's head is NOT hand carved from wood, but is in fact very thin plastic. Her articulating arms are not posable due to very loose joints. Her dress is tin - there is very little wood here. But she is beautiful to look at. I actually screwed her down to my mantel, because if it ever got knocked over, the head would shatter like an egg.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Wenidog Absolutely beautiful
I loved this Santos as soon as I opened the box. It is quite tall and really makes a statement, looks appropriately aged without looking cheap. However, the head was badly cracked. So, I contacted customer service, returned the Santos and was shipped a replacement...which also had a cracked head. I swear it was the same one I had just returned! I contacted customer service and am currently waiting for my 3rd Santos...hoping all is well!
I enjoy this piece so much, I will continue until I receive one that is in perfect condition. Because of the exceptional look of this piece, I ordered the Santos Bust too. It's just as nice!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Adrianne Beautiful Detail
The Santos Angel is a beautifully detailed figure. The height was larger than expected, so rather than sitting on the mantle as intended, it sits on the floor next to the fireplace. The wings are even more beautiful in person.
The only criticism I have is for the halo. It is very dainty, and can be bent easily. It also sits very precariously on the head, and falls off if you even lightly brush against the angel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jmaterne The Santos with wings is very versatile.
I have purchased all of my Santos figurs from Ballard Designs. The santos with wings is versatile, in that her wings are removable. I can use her for holidays, or display her year round.

I just received my Santos Angel and so love it! It is beautiful and I plan to use it all year round. I am going to have her hold a fall wreath by extending her arms in front of her and will put a fabulous Christmas wreath during the holidays. Ballard Designs I love your items!!

This piece is just lovely, full of serenity and peace. It's very well made, too. The skirt is metal, and not wood/resin as the description would have you believe, but it doesn't affect the beauty at all. The star halo base needed to be adjusted to an oval to fit. Aside from those two things -- LOVE IT!
