Are you looking for wood Santos? Santos, painted wood carvings of saints, represent one of the oldest living traditions of religious devotion practiced by Hispanic Americans. A powerful expression of Latino heritage and tradition, santo making has flourished in the United States from the 16th century to the present. Many believe Santos or 'little saints' are a link between heaven and earth, a way of focusing devotion and prayer to the saints they represent. In many homes, these beautiful carvings become active presences for good, teaching grace, compassion and love.
