Ceramics from yesteryear
The Virgen de Guadalupe, milagros, sacred hearts and images are all artistic motifs used in Mexican folk art in every state in Mexico.
The Christmas decorations of Mexico vary by region but are always colorful and festive whether made of tin, paper, wood, textiles or clay.
"Milagro"means "miracle" in Spanish. Milagros are religious charms that are prevalent throughout Mexico and are used to request or thank God for a miracle.

This recognizable colorful and vibrant style of folk art was made by a Huichol artisan named Pedro Bautista. The Huichol are a group of people primarily from Nayarit, the Mexican state just to the north and east of Puerto Vallarta. Yarn paintings are inspired by the dreams that visit the curanderos during a peyote ritual and often contain many of the sacred symbols of the Huichol people including deer, peyote, suns and moons and fire. Yarn paintings are made on a piece of plywood and the picture may be sketched out (or not) by the artist. A layer of bees wax is applied to the wood and then the long strands of yarn are decoratively placed and pressed into the wax to create the painting. This piece has a tiny little wobble in the upper left corner where the yarn wanted to escape. I've pushed it back into the wax and I think it will be pretty secure (see closeup).
This particular piece has some explanatory material written in Spanish by the artist on the back of wooden frame. He also signed it.
