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.

"They are really cute!"

These little animals are so much cuter than the usual worry dolls. I bought some of each for Christmas presents and these little animals are cuter than the little dolls.

"Meaningful ornaments"

These were a perfect gift for my grandson s other grandmother who sadly lost her husband . He was of Maya heritage (Belize). My grandson and his grandmother always exchange angels at Christmas. His grandmother is 84 and doesn t need anything, but these warmed her heart. These will be up long past Christmas.
