Maria Milagrosa- Miraculous Mary
This is one of my favorite pieces. This small wooden chest is collaged on all sides. The silver embellishment on top is a vintage piece from Italy. The "M" is from the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC. (both added after the photo was taken) The metal church was purchased in Mexico.
Several inspirations for this piece...my confirmation name is Maria. My travels to Mexico. And the reading of "The Secret Life of Bee's" and the black Mary shrine portrayed in the story.
