I love religious icons and often pick them up on my travels. I particularly like the folksy tin ones that you can pick up in Mexico. I don't collect them for religious reasons - although it's comforting to have them around the house - but I find the beautiful colours and imagery quite captivating. Here are a some from my collection
A beautiful Mexican wooden angel bought in Old Town, San Diego years ago and this pretty tin icon from a folk art shop in Pasadena CA.
