Item Condition- Framed in an antique wood and plaster frame, frame was used for its aged look. This frame is scratched, nicked, chipped, stained and cracked. Please examine the pictures closely as returns are not accepted.
Inspired by the use of ex-votos and milagros, charms hung by representations of Catholic saints in thanks, or in hope of, a miracle or problems solved. There are many different forms of love. Yet, when is love true, and when does one love with the expectation of something in return? Faith is a powerful thing, but don't assume you'll receive a miracle in return.
There are several elements to this piece. A black felt covered heart is secured to charcoal grey linen. Within the heart is a vintage, excavated porcelain doll with a red hand beaded halo. The doll is framed by an antique photo frame from an old tin type case. Milagros are hand sewn on as are the flames hand beaded. The frame itself is very old and flawed. Tied around the frame are black strings with more milagros hanging from them.
Measures Approximately- 13.5"x 11.5"
