Based on the stipulations of this challenge Anna has created pieces inspired by the theme of anatomical votive offerings. Votives are sacred objects which serve to facilitate a contract between an individual and the divine. They can represent desires, promises thoughts or physical ailments that need the attention of God/gods. Anatomical votives are literal representations of a part of the body internal or external that needs attention. Anna has taken imprints of orthodox Greek votive tama and original Mexican milagro to combine and produce these dramatic votive brooches.
