Ex Voto Heart
mixed media collage by Jennifer Wilkin, 2012
Size: 2-1/8 - 3-1/4 inches
Date and name of artist on back

This collage was created as part of a series I completed for the Art-o-mat project (http://artomat.org). The series is called "Italian Ex Votos", and I made a few more than I needed for the project, so I am selling some of them here at my Etsy shop.

These tiny collages look great singly, but also in groups of two, three, four or more (see photos for framing/grouping ideas).

Silver votive images hang in churches throughout Italy and are part of a tradition, of asking and thanking divinities for favors, that is traced to pagan antiquity. My collages employ photos of my own collection of old silver ex votos (bought in Italy, over many years). The photos look surprisingly real and three-dimensional, and I have "re-hung" the votives on "new walls", using a variety of paper sources.

This listing is for 1 Original Collage ("Ex Voto Heart"). No frame or mat is included. This is not a copy or a print. Copyright does not transfer with purchase and may not be reproduced. This will be mailed in a nice clear envelope.
