This is a beautiful and unique large wall mirror. The artisan has covered a stained wooden mirror frame with milagros. The edges are lined with gold paint. This is no easy task! The placement of the milagros is a skill that is acquired after much practice. These milagros have a gold sheen to them and are most likely latón or brass. These mirrors have a golden background on top of the stained wood, so they appear even softer and more lovely.
Milagros are small religious charms that people nail onto sacred objects, pin on the clothing of saint statues, or hang with ribbons or threads from altars and shrines. The word "milagro" means "miracle." People carry milagros for protection, good luck and to request help or thanks for problems of everyday living.
