Milagros are good luck charms. Many are made in the shape of body parts and are thought to "heal" those ailing organs.
Milagro means "miracle" in Spanish. In olden times, these metal charms were presented to priests or tacked up on church altars with the hope of receiving protection, better health, romance or overall improved living circumstances.
Today, believers carry these charms as talismans. Others use them to decorate home decor items such as photo frames and jewelry boxes. The mix of milagros - angels, body parts, people, animals, and more - makes for attractive and interesting works of art.
