Body Parts

Ex-votos, such as these in the shape of body parts, decorate the entrance of the shrine of Santa Rosalia at the top of Mount Pellegrino. They were given to the saint as gratitude for healing received—in this case, for ailments of the lungs, internal organs, breasts, and back. Ex-votos are very common in Sicily.
