Votive offerings are a token of gratitude, an expression of thanksgiving for salvation in an hour of need, brought to a sacred place in accordance with a solemnly declared pledge (‘ex voto’). The cause for the vow could be catastrophes, illness, floods, accidents or wars. Even prehistoric man and people in ancient times were familiar with this practice and brought votive offerings to sacred places. Votive offerings and votive pictures (paintings or reverse-glass paintings that depict saints or scenes from life) have existed for a long time in Christianity. The old votive offerings, made of metal, silver, gold, brass, copper or silver-plated tin, were often richly decorated with stones and grandiose details (depending on the giver’s wealth) and were made before 1900. They are still traditional today.

    I had to give you my appreciation for you, when I opened the package I was impressed by the care he had. The artwork is really beautiful, even more than the pictures, even though they were very detail
