🔴SOLD-Nicho-Agave Hand and Heart
The Nicho Series is inspired by objects of prayer and gratitude, 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 hand carved from fallen aspen wood. The hand holds a carvedheart with carved agave leaves sprouting from the arm. The hand and background are delicately painted with acrylic. On the top of the frame there are tiny hand paintedclouds. The glass door to the box can be opened if desired.
