Embroidered Fabric Ex Votos
These ex votos (short for ex voto suscepto, “from the vow made”) are from San Miguel de Allende.
These little votive offerings feature stories of miracles, or of disaster averted. In Mexico, ex votos are made to honor the saint who granted the miracle.
Each of these stories is very specific and shows lots of individual character.
Measurements vary by piece, but are in the range of 11.5"H x 9.5"W, to 11.5"H x 12" W
