Large Jeweled Flaming Heart Milagro - larger cachette (Cachette is French for ‘hiding place’. You can pop it open and store trinkets, prayers, or other secret keepsakes.)– this one is large enough that it could actually be considered a reliquary. You don’t have to store relics in it, however. It would be so sweet to hold your babies first tooth, or a lock of hair of your loved one .
The earliest modern record of the Belvedere Torso dates from the 1430s. What we now view as an icon of ancient Greek civilization had just resurfaced in Rome. It was far from an instant hit--it would take another generation before the Torso caught on. But once it did, this relic of antiquity sparked a classical revival that we have come to know as the Renaissance.
