Grace Received Milagro- Reproduction of mid-1800s Spanish Design
Reproduction of Spanish Ex Voto/Milagro from Mid- 1800s
The Latin term ex voto (short for ex voto suscepto, “from the vow made”), has been a Catholic symbolic offering placed in a home, church, or shrine as a thanksgiving for a miracle received. This reproduction design captures the beauty of the original. The relief emblem: "Gracia Recibido," is Grace Received.
MEANING. The premise of the Catholic ex voto is the vow, in a moment of hardship, crisis, or ill health, to give public thanks to God. The ex voto, in turn, is the concrete testimonial of that vow’s fulfillment,” an object that stands as the material representation of the miracle itself. Ex votos are also offered in thanksgiving for unexpected miracles, in which case they function as public affirmations of God’s constant powerful presence in the lives of the faithful.
SIZE - Measures 9"x 7" x .2".
The size of this reproduction Ex-Voto makes it a perfect gift. Meant to be hung on a wall in gratitude. Note this item is made of tin alloy (as per original design) and can bend. It is not heavy.
