About the miracle charms called Milagros.
The english word literally means “Miracle”, these small charm are thought to have originated with the ancient Iberians who inhabited the coastal regions of Spain 2000 - 3000 B.C.. Mini metal medallions made in endless shapes and sizes, each figure has a different meaning and are usually made from alpaca or tin. For century’s through-out Latin America people of faith have used Milagros as votive offerings to mend or heal ailments, they represent a prayer for "assistance" with difficulties in their daily lives. We have fused these "divine charms" with various carved wood sculptures, crosses, hearts, and accessories.
