Nichos
(Shadow boxes, Portable Altars)
NICHOS or if you prefer Niches are made of tin (hojalata) and glass.  They are derived from the Spanish traditions of portable altars, used for prosilityzing
to the indigenous peoples.  These particular nichos are made by Jose Antonio Madraza who lives in San Miguel de Allende.  He is bi-lingual and makes the sayings
or "dichos" in English as well.  Many of these nichos are Day of the Dead themed.  All of the nichos are made by hand, some are hinged and have doors
that close. 
They can be religious, humorous, polictical, philosophical or irreverant.  They come in a variety of sizes, make great gifts and are wonderful decorative pieces.
