dosa White Heart


Member Price

What could be sweeter than a double-sided white heart from dosa? These were inspired by milagros found at the Basilica de la Soledad in Oaxaca, Mexico. Each is unique and is stitched by women in Yjutlan, near Oaxaca. Our photo shows a beaded heart being created, the white hearts are also constructed by hand. Fabric remnants are recycled from other work to create these small wonders.

LACMA's collections include almost 90 examples of Spanish Colonial art. Milagros, "miracles,"  are religious folk charms that can be offered to a saint when a miracle is needed, or in thanks for one that has happened.  

- Each heart is hand-stitched
- There is a heart on either side
- Approximately 1.5 inches square
- Edge stitching color may vary
