Devotional Objects: Objects of piety, such as images and sculptural representations of God, Jesus, the Virgin Mary or the saints, or of churches and holy shrines. In addition, devotional objects include rosaries and vessels for holy water. They are sold in places of pilgrimage, but although often blessed in the Catholic church, they may not be sold as consecrated objects. Since the 19th century, they have largely lost their artistic significance as a result of industrial production.
