Ex voto

“Ex voto” is a Latin term that means “from a vow” in English. In the context of religious or spiritual practices, an ex-voto is a votive offering given in gratitude or as a fulfillment of a vow or promise made. These offerings are usually presented to a deity or a sacred figure as a way of expressing gratitude or asking for divine intervention. Ex-votos can take different forms such as objects, plaques or written notes, and are commonly displayed in places of worship like churches, temples, or shrines.
