Absolutely gorgeous Mexican tin nicho painted in purple, turquoise, silver and blues.

This is definitely a different and unusual piece of art and so beautiful!

This nicho is shaped as a sacred heart with wings, which I have painted and decorated with lots of detail. Open up the purple heart of the nicho and find a small heart shaped glass window to the shadow box at the back! you can display it open or closed on the wall.

Then if thats not enough, at the back of the nicho is a shadow box! Inside I have placed a sweet wee day of the dead figurine of Frida Kahlo, paper flowers and sequin beads. Super sweet!
Such a wonderful piece of wall art!

Measures: 6.5" wide, 1.5" deep, 7" high

I will carefully ship this piece via priority mail. If you want it posted via regular mail, message me and I can amend with your zip code :) and I definitely ship internationally, just ask me for a postage quote!! thanks!


I discovered tin nichos in a small town of Mexico. They are hand made and are similar to shadow boxes or shrines with little windows and are hung on the wall. I have then painted and decorated the nichos with all sorts of materials in many different themes. The inspiration for the decoration of these nichos is very Mexican - bright colours, religious icons and artefacts, skulls and day of the dead, Frida Kahlo and the Mexican loteria.
I hope you enjoy and thanks for looking! :)
