come se disegnassero un ex voto

A man is describing his talks with older peasants who went through the partisan war: "Tremano, si emozionano. Raccontano, ed è come se revivessero un brutto sogno, come se disegnassero un ex voto."

As if they were designing an ex-voto? That translation, I'm afraid, doesn't make sense. What am I getting wrong (something, that's for sure)?

    Thank you, Mary; I guess the problem was that, being a heathenish infidel, I didn't really know what an ex-voto was.
