Niño del Consuelo, Figurine, Mexico City

This wonderful figurine, from Mexico City and sourced by our friend Daisy Tainton, depicts the miraculous Niño del Consuelo, or The Holy Child of Consolation. It is a copy of a miraculous 18th century statue in Chalma, Mexico.

This figure is best known as an advocate for children; when he grants a miracle on behalf of the child, offerings of toys or baby clothes are left in thanks.
