    I want to make my own! In Mexican & South American cultures, small, decorated boxes called "nichos" are commonly found in home & public places, displayed on walls or pedestals. Made from wood or tin & often painted with bright colors, they provide a stage-like setting for an object or collection of objects that have great significance. Most commonly functioning as an alter for a religious icon, a Nicho can also serve as a memorial to a loved one or as a reminder of an important event.
