 Our Description

This exquisite statue of Saint John of the Cross is made of wood paste with glass eyes. Meticulously hand made in Spain using the same process from when the company started in 1880. It is hand-painted with oil colours so no two statues will look exactly the same. Notice the incredible attention to detail on every part of the statue. A true work of art!

Some pictures are for different quality finishes. Please read the finish explanation guide before purchasing.

Detail will vary according to size of statue ordered. This is available in sizes from 20 - 32 inches.

Each statue is made to order and delivery time usually takes 6 to 12 weeks. Refunds are not available because each statue is custom made for you.

Price includes shipping cost.
