Details

Guatemalan artisan Elias Garcia crafts this colorful mobile from hand-painted palo blanco and handcrafted Guatemalan worry dolls made by his sister Aura. Each doll features a unique handwoven dress in a rainbow of gold, scarlet, spring green, fuchsia, and turquoise tones.

Quitapenas or "worry dolls" represent Ixmucane, a princess who was gifted with infinite wisdom. Children are instructed to confide all of their worries to their quitapenas and then place them underneath their pillow at night. The dolls are thought to impart their wisdom to them while they sleep and so that in the morning they'll wake up knowing what to do.

"This worry doll wreath will cheer me up!"

This worry doll wreath is very well made. And when I received it, it was very carefully wrapped so it was in great condition. I have some physical problems so the wreath will cheer me up whenever I look at it! Thankyou Elias!
