An ex-voto is an offering to a saint or deity, to grant a wish or as a sign of thanks for a grace bestowed. An ex-voto can also be placed in memory of a deity.
These gestures, whether propitiatory, gratulatory or supererogatory, reveal the unique nature of the ex-voto, a gesture of exchange and a form of contract.
Each drawing corresponds to a vow, an act of thanksgiving or an appeal. Viewers are free to guess, or to add their own gestures.
