Brazil: Ex-votos

Ex-voto sculpture in Brazil is unique to the impoverished Northeast where many "Houses of Miracles" attached to churches contain countless pieces of wooden body parts (ex-votos), evidence of a miracle performed, like a cure for a disease or injury.  

The article "Miracles in the Backlands – Aspects of Africa in Brazilian Ex-Voto Sculpture" can be read here

Our spectacular Brazilian ex-voto collection consists of over 200 unique pieces.
