Mensagem: 

In some Catholic countries, they simply call  `capelinha´

as IMAGE or STATUE.  Por example, `The image of Our Lady of Guadalupe

will stay with us for two nights.´/ `We welcome the statue of Saint Francis of

Sales to our barrio.´ /`The image of Our Lady Fatima was brought to my

aunt´s house yesterday.´

Image is commonly used as it connotes more movability.

Hope this attempt helps a bit.
