Details

This colorful and festive garland is made by the Lopez Garcia Family in Guatemala who specialize in quitapenas, or traditional worry dolls. "The idea is to trust each doll with whatever troubles you. It is said that during the night, while we sleep, the dolls will whisper the solution to our troubles," says Ana from the Lopez Garcia Family. The garland is a cheerful accent for your home or Christmas tree.

Legend has it that the Maya Sun God gave princess Ixmucané the gift of solving people's problems. With time people started making dolls in Ixmucané's honor and they would tell her their woes, hoping she would solve them through the dolls.

My grandmother gave me these when I was a young girl. I am planning on sharing them with my grandchildren and grand nieces and nephews (over 40 in all!). Every time I receive a discount coupon, I buy more.

"Guatemalan Worry Dolls"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Years ago my high school Spanish teacher told us about worry dolls and gave us each one. I was excited to find these at Novica. I love the Two Mothers worry dolls because of the beautiful colors of their outfits and the attention to detail. The López García family does outstanding work.
