The third issue in the RJW Hummel® collection is the beautiful "Celestial Musician" doll based on an original illustration by Sister Marie Innocentia.
"The joy of childhood is visible in the work of Franciscan Sister Maria Innocentia, better known as Berta Hummel. Her sketches and watercolors captured children’s happiness and simplicity even during the darkest hours of war-torn Germany." Jay Copp
The Celestial Musician is made entirely of the finest all-wool felt. Fully jointed with the RJW ball & socket system with internal wood mechanism, the lovely angel child stands approximately 12" tall. This is the first RJW Hummel to feature the distinctive lowered eye lids. The molded felt head has delicately hand painted features, and a wig of the finest mohair. The expressive hands have individually-sewn fingers and sculptural details.
If you love Christmas, this Christmas angel is the perfect addition to your Christmas display or gift for the lover of holiday magic in your life.
The Celestial Musician comes costumed in a classic all-felt gown with metallic star motif. The angel wings are beautifully sculpted and molded out of felt and delicately hand painted. The entire costume has been artistically shaded in subtle hues to evoke the original Hummel coloring perfectly.
The little musician holds a custom-made violin and bow handcrafted out of wood at the R. John Wright Workshop. A satchel made of all-wool felt hangs on a strap from one shoulder. Every detail has been meticulously researched to capture the essence and emotion of the original Hummel® design. Each doll includes a felt-covered wooden stand with a metal rod which inserts into a leg for easy display.
The wonderful part about this piece really is his magnificent size, measuring 12" tall. He really stands out in a room - and because he is so lifelike, if you listen closely, you can hear his music! He is seen here in the den of John and Susan Wright.
The Hummel musician is currently being shipped for Christmas 2015 delivery and is limited to 100 pieces worldwide. Celebrate the season with the R. John Wright Celestial Musician Holiday Angel.
