Saint Rose of Lima wooden statue doll
***This St. Rose of Lima doll will be made after purchase.Please allow up to three weeks for shipment. This item will resemble the photos essentially but will be different being that it is hand painted. If you wish to have a photo sent before it is shipped just notify me.***

St. Rose of Lima lived at the turn of the 16th century. She was baptized Isabel but was nicknamed Rose. She was very beautiful and many men sought her hand in marriage. However, she wanted to dedicate her life to God. To deter suitors she prayed to become ugly so they would leave her alone. There are a few stories about how she accomplished this. In the end a skin ailment marred her face making her appear ugly. Happily, she joined the Dominican order. Once a nun, it is said, God made her more beautiful than ever. She lived an autere life and died at the young age of 31.

This is a hand-painted large wood peg doll that is 3 1/2 inches tall. She is painted with non-toxic acrylic paint and sealer. She is dressed in the Dominican habit of her day with a crown of roses and flowers around her head and growing at her feet. Her name and "pray for us" are painted on the back. She is a good size for little toddler hands and is durable being a single piece of wood. This doll is a rendition of St. Rose of Lima. I love making my dolls whimsical and artsy and, for this reason, my next Rose of Lima will probably look a little different though she will still be dressed in her Dominican habit with a crown of flowers on her head.

The last photo shows one of my daughters holding another St. Rose doll of the same size. I can also make these dolls as 2 1/4" peg dolls but those are labelled as choking hazards (though I let my younger children play with them as they seem rather big). Use your discretion.
God bless!!
