Heart covered in Milagros, which mean “miracles” Hand Painted 5.25" x 4.25" x 1" Folk Art 198

Milagros, or tiny miracles, are small religious charms that have been used in Mexico and other areas of Latin America for hundreds of years to petition saints for guidance, help and protection. Milagros are made in many different symbolic forms, from eyes, legs and arms to angels and animals. These religious charms are pinned to altars and statues of saints, the Virgin Mary and Jesus in churches throughout Latin America as prayer reminders or to thank the saint for prayers answered.

These milagros are made of what is commonly called "pot metal". Pot metal is a combination of various of inexpensive metals that are melted together and then placed in a mold to shape them into the milagros.
