Vintage Sacred Heart Ornament, Wall Hanger, Ex Voto, Cross, Religious
Lovely vintage Sacred Heart ornament wall hanger. This Ex Voto Sacred Heart is made of a silver metal and a nice large size measuring 6.5" tall x 4.25" wide. It has a hanger on the back for hanging. We picked this out of a Kansas City estate filled with religious items. Ex-votos (from the Latin phrase ex-voto suscepto, meaning ‘from the vow made’) were – and still are – carried as devotional objects and to give thanks for granted wishes, prayers and intentions. Also know as Sacred Hearts, they can be traced to the 11th century. They gained popularity in the 17th century when a French nun named Marguerite-Marie Alacoque experienced visions of Jesus Christ, in which he spoke to her and showed her his heart, entwined with thorns and flames and surmounted by a cross. She devoted herself and her country to the veneration of his heart, and established a Sacred Heart feast day. The Sacred Heart became a popular emblem worn for protection against danger and disease.
