Ex-votos

Model ex-voto of a fishing llagut with an unfurled sail and an embroidered inscription that reads “Pedro Figuerola” and “Torredembarra”. Figuerola is the name of the individual who offered the ex-voto (perhaps even the person that made it), while Torredembarra is the name of a Catalan town. This model is from the Hermitage of Sant Antoni in Altafulla, a nearby town, and it may have been made around the turn of the 20th century.
