Winged Calacas Mexican Milagro Tin Ornament
Calacas carrying a Heart Mexican Milagro, or Tin Heart Ornaments, Handmade in Oaxaca, Mexico
Add these wonderful calacas to your Mexican decor: a central heart being carried by two skeletons with wings, the perfect decor for a year-round Día de Muertos spirit!
Artisans in Oaxaca create these Mexican tin hearts, also called milagritos or ex votos, which are a typical Oaxacan ornament used for decoration. Tin work, known in Mexico as hojalata, is made by cutting, shaping, and embossing the pieces. Finally, a bright lacquer paint is applied to the tin to have the beautiful final pieces!
