In Spanish, the word milagro literally means miracle or surprise.
Milagros (also known as an ex-voto or dijes or promesas) are religious folk charms that are traditionally used for healing purposes and as votive offerings in Mexico, the southern United States, other areas of Latin America, and parts of the Iberian peninsula. They are frequently attached to altars, shrines, and sacred objects found in places of worship.
My milagros are hand carved, molded and then poured with beeswax and carved some more. They're light in weight, so easy to hang on your wall with a little nail.
