Ex-Voto heart made of pressed silver metal (stamped 800) with flames and angels emblazoned with a crowned monogramme 'AM'; Ave Maria, the central heart surrounded by symbols of the crucifixtion.

Ex-voto (from the vow made), is a symbol of faith and gratitude towards a deity or saint, especially in the Catholic faith.
