My Workbench... Ripping Wood for a New Santos Cage Doll

la Angel de Su presencia
"The Angel of His Presence"
The idea all came together early one morning during 
the bleakest days of mid-November. 
I was reading these ancient words from the book of Isaiah, 
and they just seemed to jump off the page:
In all their affliction He was afflicted, 
and the angel of His presence saved them;  
in His love and in His mercy He redeemed them, 
and He lifted them and carried them all the days of old.”  
(Isaiah 63:9  NASB) 

In those moments, the images of a love that is so powerful, 
its very presence lifts one up– became the creative spark 
for this Santos cage doll.

I am using some knotty pine, wood rope trim, and worn tobacco stakes
from Lancaster County for the the cage.
