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.

The back is covered with hand woven off-white cotton, also woven in Guatemala. They both close with an invisible zipper. The color combination is a beautiful faded pink and creamy ivory. The large tassels coordinate in pink and cream at the four corners. It comes without the insert. Zipper closure is on the bottom. They are very subtle, very unique and gorgeous.
