I have a new art project I’m really excited about. I ordered a box of nichos in various sizes from Mexico. Nichos are usually made of metal (often tin) or wood. They are little shrines or devotionals, made to honor family members, saints, or other religious figures. They are made in only one city in Mexico: San Miguel de Allende.
Ever since we moved into our house two years ago, I’ve been planning to make a family photo wall. I am looking forward to using the nichos to house images of my grandparents and other family members and pay homage to their memories.
