milagro -- spanish word for miracle - milagros are small charms used to petition saints for help or protection or for healing purposes and votive offerings--
the piece is constructed from hardware cloth, carpet warp, wood strips, and milagros -
the hardware cloth is knotted together with various colors of carpet warp to form protective shelters for the milagros - these structures are supported by the wood strips that run vertically and horizontally through them -- hanging within are different "milagros", each offering petitions for health and protection - the piece is about 2ft by 2 ft
