Mini Double Eye Nicho

  • Mini Double Eye Nicho

The Nicho Series is inspired by objects of prayer and gratitute, ex votos and milagros from Mexico and Latin America. Traditionally Milagros were used as offerings to request help or give thanks for assistance with any number of circumstances, from mending bones to finding lost pets. Frequently they are used in requests for healing. The word "milagro" is Spanish for "miracle". The tin boxes are made in Mexico. Inside this nicho is a pair of eyes carved from fallen aspen wood. The eyes and background are delicately painted with acrylic.
