Ex-votos are hand-painted Church or shrine offerings. Though they are made in many forms around the world, a traditional Mexican style is hand-painted on thin pieces of tin or wood, featuring figures and writing, and holes for hanging or securing the piece in place.

This special, well-rendered, very petite ex-voto features the crucifix surrounded by the instruments of passion, and a petition for a "hail mary" and "our father" prayer for an entire family whose names are listed on the right side of the cross.

At the base of the cross are four "animas del purgatorio", or souls of purgatory. This is in perfect condition. Mid to late 20th century.
