Hand Painted Mexican Tin Cross
My all time favourite Mexican Cross. I love the colours, the hand painted strokes and the burning sacred heart in the centre. I have had one hanging on my wall for years. Each hand painted Mexican tin cross is unique, no two will ever be exactly the same. The cross you receive may vary slightly from the one picture however it will have the same look and feel.
The crosses are a traditional Mexican handcraft, they are symbolic of their strong Catholic faith. This particular cross features the Burning Sacred Heart as the centre piece, it’s a symbol of Jesus’s divine love the humanity.
You will notice that most of the Mexican folk art is religious, this is because the vast population of Mexico is Catholic with strong cultural roots in religion. The vibrancy and life of Mexico is really captured in their folk art and handcrafts, from beautiful colours to floral motifs, skulls and mirrors. It’s all in the gorgeous details, gold trims, white accents and faux flowers adorning some of the pieces.
We love how this cross pops off the wall giving you an interesting 3D perspective to your art wall. The Mexican art also look great grouped together with others or your photos and art.
The cross measures 43cm in length and 25.5cm across. However it may vary slightly.
We also offer a special order service, you can call or email us here.
“Ones home should be a reflection of the life they have lead, the travels and memories.”
So if you love and adore the vibrant colours of traditional Mexican handcrafts and love your personality to shine through in your home. You will love this hand painted Mexican cross, Love Edwina & the bowerbirds xo
