If only....











If I ever win the lottery I would'nt purchase a fancy new car or buy diamonds. I would start collecting santos'. To me they are such beautiful works of art and invoke such a feeling of peace and tranquility when i look at them.
I am currently madly in love with these pieces that are on ebay. I could sit for hours and look at them and can only imagine what it would be like to see them in person. I hope that whoever wins them will treasure them like they should be, I just wish I could be the one!

Cheryl, These are pretty amazing. I have this very weird phobia of religious objects such as crucifixes and statues etc. My room mates in college would give me such a hard time and a good laugh when I would tell them about some of my nightmares that plagued me as a child. I can surely see why these are so special... my "creep meter" isn't even going off! heehee
