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.

"How to cheer a granddaughter down with Covid"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I bought this, thinking I would squirrel it away to send to my college-aged granddaughter for Valentines Day. When it arrived, I was so impressed by the packaging, I didnt even dare open it. But about a week ago, my granddaughter came down with Covid, and we were all worried about her. So off the worry-doll wreath went, in the mail to Chloes house. When she called to thank me, I could tell by the sound of her voice that it had done the trick. Now she is a Novica fan as am. She went right to the site and was thrilled to note that some gift purchases went to support educational causes. (Shes a special education major.) Im so happy I discovered this site and so is she!

"Granddaughter Took it to College"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This was a gift for my granddaughter about a year ago. She adored it and hung it on her wall above her bed. This year she went away to college and took this wreath with her! She said it made her feel loved. It now hangs on the door to her dorm room, and is a way to make friends for her since all the girls on her floor want to ask about it and comment how much they love it. It has become a way for her to show the kind of sweet person she is.
