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.

These kitschy-beautiful nicho boxes are for blessing the home and keeping it safe and protected from the bad things that can interfere with the good life. They are OLD and I'm not sure on the dating. The artist used a technique called reverse-glass painting so the "frame" around the images inside the box is actually painted on the inside of the glass. The style is dated and difficult to find at the moment. I bought these boxes in Mexico City about 10 years ago at the "Thieves Market" in downtown Mexico City. Both boxes feature the Virgin of Guadalupe, the Mother Mary figure who is displayed and worshiped across the country. And have a "bendiga" or blessing written in Spanish to keep the house blessed.
