Tama is a form of votive offering or ex-voto used in the Eastern Orthodox Churches,
particularly the Greek Orthodox Church.
Tamata are usually small metal plaques, which may be of base or precious metal, usually with an embossed image symbolizing the subject of prayer for which the plaque is offered.
Tamata may be offered to an icon or shrine of a saint as a reminder of a petitioner’s particular need, or in gratitude for a prayer answered.
Very beautiful original vintage set of 6 tamata.
