Original Brazilian Vintage Collection of 8 Bones Parts ex votos (milagros) from the Northeast Region
All authentic and collected by Folk Art Museum Curator during trips to Brazil


This is a fantastic and rare ex voto lot from northeastern Brazil. The ex votos, or milagres (Portuguese for milagros) in the predominately Afro-Brazilian area of northern Brazil are uniquely carved from wood and frequently reflect the art of West Africa.
The wooden figures, like most ex votos and milagros, are commissioned by a devotee and brought to a church as an offering for a promise fulfilled, frequently for health.
These ex votos depict bone parts, perhaps reflective of the owner's members health problems.
These beautiful and rare figures, carved from tropical wood, would be a great addition to any collection of devotional art!

An amazing representation of faith and art bound together into pure Naif Expressionism
