This primitive face is a fine reproduction of a vintage Mexican milagro. It comes in either sterling silver or yellow bronze, with matching jump ring. It measures app. 1" high by 1/2" wide.
Artisans from Latin America and Mexico have made milagros as portable icons, amulets that one can carry or wear for protection from harmful forces, in thanksgiving for blessings received, and as reminders of the transformations of faith.
This wonderfully detailed face would be perfect for adding to handmade jewelry, for incorporating into a shrine, or for giving as a small, interesting gift.
