The Latin expression “ ex voto ” means “ by virtue of a vow ”. Ex votos are precious objects offered with gratitude or to honor a wish made to a deity or saint. Their history dates back to Antiquity, when the Greeks and Romans used them to celebrate moments of grace : miraculous healing, survival after an accident or success in areas that were dear to them.
