These Mexican carved wooden hearts are covered in milagros. Generally they are a dark brown wood heart topped by a flame symbolizing the Sacred Heart. Milagro means “miracle,” and the tiny religious charms are generally used to thank or request spiritual help for a specific problem. Each heart is covered with different kinds of milagros, made of pot metal and hammered onto the wood. Pot metal is a combination of lots of inexpensive metals that are melted together and then placed in a mold to shape them into the milagros. They are a silver or gold color but are not made of silver or gold. A lovely and popular gift, these wooden heart come in different sizes and with or without wings.
Let us know in the notes if you have a color preference. The specific set of milagros arranged on your heart will depend on our constantly changing stock, and we will choose your heart for you. All are one-of-a-kind.
