Traditionally, Milagros (Spanish for "miracles") were metal religious pieces of various shapes and sizes found throughout Latin America and Mediterranean Europe. These Milagros are used to petition the saints for help or protection or to thank the saints for prayers answered.
This interpretation of the traditional Milagros is based on familiar icons, hand carved detailed miniatures or cast from nature. Their meanings can be metaphorical or literal.
Milagros are fun to collect, use in art or craft projects and for personal expression. They also make wonderful game pieces! Everyone could use a little miracle now and then!
