I now have a little collection of Detentes, all bought in Peru. Here is an earlier post I have written about my first detentes.
This time I were lucky. The day before going back to Denmark, I visited the street Avenida La Paz in Miraflores district of Lima. There is especially one female antique owner who often gets some "new" old detentes. I were able to expand my collection here and this is what I found.
This unique detente is with a bleeding heart in the center with a cross on the top, surrounded by branches with flowers. I think the fabric is silk.
The size is 6 x 7,5cm.
Two small detentes where there is embroidery on both sides. It is the first time I have seen it as with the detente to the left. They are both a little bit destroyed.
To the right it says: DETENTE el Corazón de Jesús está conmigo: the heart of Jesus is with me.
They are around 3-3,5 cm in the diameter.
Here Jesus is on the Cruzifix surrounded by gold embroidery and pink flowers.
On top of Jesus it says; INRI. In latin it means: "Iesus Nazarenus Rex Iudaeorum", Jesus the Nazarene, King of the Jews.
This detente is big, 9 cm in length.
Two detente with Maria in focus. The one to the left were wrapped inside plastic when I bought it, so now it is very shiny and clean.
Two detente with perhaps baby Jesus.
The last couple of detentes all have a photo in the center behind plastic, surrounded by embroidery of flowers.
Two detente with a lot of details. The one to the right is so delicate with the little sheep, VIVA MARIA and VIVA JESVS, the embroidered flowers and a person.
They are very small, only 3 x 4 cm.
Like with the first detentes I bought, I also here have a favorite.
The embroidered thread in the edges have almost disappear. The heart is bleeding, but behind is the sun.
