The addition of Swarovski Crystals adds a sparkle to this 8 inch tall sacred flaming heart ex-voto. It is surrounded by graceful fleur de lis scrolls and halos. The trim of the heart is dotted with circles, alternating with very reflective, genuine Swarovski crystal. The ex-voto has a shiny brushed silver finish and is a gorgeous contrast with the golden accents and sparkly crystals.
The center of the ex-voto is decorated with a petite brass finished, punched tin "PGR". PGR stands for Per Grazia Ricevuta, which is an Italian phrase that means thanks for prayers received. For hundreds of years, ex-votos have been used as a 'thank you note' to God for receipt of a miracle or an answered prayer. In years past, it was common to fill the church with ex-votos during a wedding, other other event. It's a beautiful display piece for your Santos collection.
Measures 8 inches high by 6.5 inches wide. A loop is at the top of the ex-voto to hang with your own ribbon or cord.
