Heart with Eye Nicho

  • Heart with 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 radiant heart nicho is an eye carved from fallen aspen wood. The eye and background are delicately painted with acrylic.
