    When the Conquistadors came to the Americas, they brought with them many of the traditions of Spain, specially those having to do with religion. It was customary in Colonial homes to have a niche in the wall, or a "nicho" featuring the image of a saint, which would bless the house. These could be carved into a wall, or could be made of tin and hung on a wall. So, a nicho is essentially a recessed frame which holds either a figure or an image of a particular saint.

LOVE this... don't know that I would call it pagan or witchy, per se, however, maybe... because I have similar items and I call myself witchy and pagan.

I love the idea of using a deep set of shelves for a multi-level altar.
