"I am inlove with the traditional costume of Tamahú. The blood-red hue is very intense and vibrant. The women of this area constantly surprise me with their warmth - they are very loving and friendly," confides Iliana Hernández. The Guatemalan artisan crafts this beautiful display doll by hand with hand-woven cotton for her huipil dress and pinewood for her head, hands and feet. Her woolen hair is braided around the tocoyal on her head, and she wears a beaded necklace. The doll wears one cent coin earrings - one displaying Guatemala's coat of arms, and the other side has the face of Fray Bartolomé de las Casas, the Dominican monk who defended the indigenous community from the abuses of the Spanish conquistadors.

The women of Tamahú wear a loose-fitting huipil blouse that drapes above their skirt, and the married women wear the bac-bal headdress - single women wear their head in two braids with colorful ribbons.
