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 are a new discovery from our last trip to Oaxaca! So whimsical and creative. Each of the figures is sitting on a clothespin that can be pinched to reveal movement of the figure. The angel ascends while his wings go up and down, the painter leans forward to paint the canvas and the dancer's arms and right leg are lifted when the clothespin is pinched. Truly clever and whimsical folk art.
