This Large Antiqued Embossed Tin Sacred Heart Pierced With Arrow Ex Voto Milagro Charm Wall Hanging will add an ornate look yet decidedly vintage feel to your collection. It is modeled after a contemporary Mexicana heart edged in embossed ruffles with a holy cross rising from the top and pierced with an arrow. The pierced heart milagro may represent a request for the healing of a broken heart, thanks for a blessed romance or healing for a physical heart related ailment.

An ex-voto is a votive offering to a saint or divinity. It is given in fulfillment of a vow (hence the Latin term, short for ex voto suscepto, "from the vow made") or in gratitude or devotion. Ex-votos are placed in a church or chapel where the worshiper seeks grace or wishes to give thanks. The destinations of pilgrimages often include shrines decorated with ex-votos.

Ex-votos can take a wide variety of forms. They are not only intended for the helping figure, but also as a testimony to later visitors of the received help. As such they may include texts explaining a miracle attributed to the helper, or symbols such as a painted or modeled reproduction of a miraculously healed body part, or a directly related item such as a crutch given by a person formerly lame. There are places where a very old tradition of depositing ex-votos existed, such as Abydos in ancient Egypt.

Size: This is a nice large piece! 6" at the longest x 5" tall x 3.5" wide
