Ex votos are much the same as milagros, used as a votive offering in prayer to the Saints, to Jesus or to the Blessed Mother. Both milagros and ex votos are given either in gratitude for prayers answered or for an offering for prayers yet to be answered.
The believer chooses an ex voto (or milagro) that represents the subject of the prayer. This elegantly made voto was created in the image of a house or office. Nicely appointed with windows and a welcoming entrance, the house represents family or security. The office also represents security as well as prosperity. You might choose your own reason for offering this ex voto.
This ex voto is new, made of tin, and measures 3-1/4 inches wide by 2-1/4 inches high. There is a hole at the top center for hanging. This lovely piece is framed with a simple edging.
