Milagros or "Miracles"
In Spanish, milagro means "miracle" or "surprise". An ancient custom in the Hispanic world, the use of these tiny offerings is traceable to the Iberians of the coastal regions of Spain between the fifth and first centuries before Christ. Made of various materials, they were attached to statues of saints or to the walls of churches as a reminder of a need or in gratitude for a prayer answered. Head milagros can have various meanings – as a couple they can represent the minds and souls of two individuals that have come together as one.
