Details

Wearing a beautiful floral dress in honeysuckle with cross-stitch embroidered accents, this lovely doll comes from the Ark of a Thousand Things family workshop. The adorable Maria doll is wears her yarn hair with colorful accents, as well as embroidered earrings. She arrives with a smaller, removable doll and a wood display stand.

The charming doll originated in Mexico City when many Otomi and Mazahua people migrated to the capital in the 1970s. Due to their unique traditional clothing, the women became known as "Marias." An educational program was established for them and artist Diego Rivera's daughter, Guadalupe Rivera Marin, encouraged crafting these popular rag dolls as a way to generate income in the 1980s. Artisan women took the idea home to their Mazahua and Otomi towns and the dolls became popular throughout Mexico and abroad.
