The catalogue comprises 13 subject divisions that include a selection of 106 exvotos dedicated to the chapel of the Santo Madero icon of the city of Parras in Coahuila, painted over laminated plates. Includes for the first time popular votive offerings created in less orthodox materials, such as photography, weaving and printed and typewriting texts. The earliest piece is from 1876 and the most recent one is from 2006. They all follow the structure of the exvoto: "an intermediary plan where the main scene and/or praying donors are depicted, and a text or message, generally located in the lower part. Such plastic code corresponds to the viceroyal baroque painting and survives till these days in these depictions of popular devotion." (Our translation) --Page [1].
