Hand-crafted from cast-off 55 gallon steel drums, artists in Haiti follow four generations of tradition in metal sculpture.

"Milagros" is the Spanish word for "miracles." Milagros are small metal charms that come in a wide variety of shapes. Traditionally, these charms were used in Latin America and some European countries as religious petitions to saints and deities, somewhat like votive candles at a church altar. People pin individual milagros to the fabric draped over the statue of a saint or sometimes set them out in a shrine. These wonderful sculptures are handmade from 55 gallon oil drums in Haiti.
Great new idea is to hang using small magnets on metal!!!

Arrived quickly and well packaged without a lot of extraneous packaging. They are exactly as pictured. Really well made, sturdy and quite attractive! They are currently nailed to a post on my patio, where they add a lot of flair and interest.
