Baroque monstrance particularly elaborate, made in smelting and chisel. The oblong base supports the orbe on which two angels in flight support the flaming Sacred Heart, surrounded and wounded by the crown of thorns. At center of the magnificent aura is a shrine with a mixtilinear frame, framed by red gems and all around by vine leaves filled with leaves and bunches of grapes. At the top stands a radiant cross.
