Details

By Elias Garcia, this handcrafted cross is a reminder of the importance of faith. The artisan covers the open figure with handwoven fabric. Diminutive worry dolls in handwoven apparel stand shoulder to shoulder to surround the cutout cross. According to Maya legend, the sun god gave princess Ixmucane the gift of solving people's problems. With time people started making dolls in Ixmucane's honor and they would tell her their woes, hoping she would solve them through the dolls. Many people whisper to the dolls, then place them under their pillows at night, hoping that the doll will provide a solution as they sleep.

"Love Love Love!"

I was first exposed to these dolls on a trip to Guatemala and have loved them ever since. I have always wished for an ornament that could be used year after year. These are perfect and will be cherished and passed down to our children

I bought this for my son and daughter-in-law, for their new home. This was such a beautiful piece of art, and it was wrapped so beautifully. They really loved it, and I was so pleased that I bought another one for my daughter and her husband.
