This stunning flaming heart or Sacred Heart milagro, or ex voto, is made of hand hammered copper and boasts an aged patina. It measures about 3-1/2 inches high and 2 inches wide. On the top there is a hole for hanging. Traditionally, these are hung on a nail only. It makes a significant addition to a shrine or ofrenda (personal altar). The image of the Sacred or Flaming Heart is universal throughout Christian countries. Milagros (miracles) can add thoughtful symbolism to secular art projects as well as for shrines.
