Pub. Date:

A driving force in folk religion, milagros, or ex-votos, are found in cathedrals, humble chapels in rural areas, and roadside shrines across Latin America. This book traces the use and artistry of these small objects, which are offered to saints and other popular deities by Latin Americans in return for favors or answered prayers. The book contains sixteen color and fifty black-and-white photographs, as well as numerous line illustrations.
