Our Malta heart looks like a box and it is ready to hang up in the wall. All our Milagros or “Miracle” Hearts are made from hand-carved wood, painted and adorned with symbolic metal charms. The sacred miracle heart has strong ties to the Catholic faith and is often depicted with a cross and flames representing devotion and divine love. The artist, Joaquín, along with his family, have been crafting these icons in Micho- acán, Mexico for more than 30 years. All hearts have been signed in the back by the artisan.
