Ex Votos are votive offerings of gratitude for a vow or prayer fulfilled. Votive offerings in general are given before prayer fulfillment, they are given as appeasement, or veneration for forces beyond humankind. All types of votive offering occur around the globe from ancient to current times. These ex voto examples are from Mexico and Spain. They depict an experience and the subject of the votive offering, to thank e.g. a deity for sparing their lives or livelihoods.

My daughter Laura is a real beauty but when she got angry she cursed like a sailor. I was so ashamed and embarrass for her, I prayed to the Virgin of Zapopan. One day my daughter was about to curse but instead there were frogs, snakes and little devils falling out of her mouth. Now she speaks rather cautiously, chasing the right words and trying to speak politely. I thank the Virgin for this miracle.

Ex-voto, Man falls from balcony. Genoa, Sanctuary of Nostra Signora del Monte

When I was riding in the mountains I looked at the valley. And the devil disguised as a snake scared my mule, so we both fell down. I was falling and thinking that I’d die without having loved anyone. So I implored the Virgin of Guadalupe, and thanks to her my mule and I, we both fell into dense bushes. We didn’t brake any bone. I thank for that.
