The use of reliquaries originates from the worship of Martyrs, and dates back to the very beginning of Christianity.
Reliquaries are the containers that store and display remains of a Saint, or objects belonging to them.
Different types of reliquaries can be found in the shape of ostensories, busts, and they are usually crafted of or covered by gold, silver and precious stones.
