Details

By Elias Garcia, this handcrafted cross is a reminder of the importance of faith. The artisan covers the open figure with handwoven fabric. Diminutive worry dolls in handwoven apparel stand shoulder to shoulder to surround the cutout cross. According to Maya legend, the sun god gave princess Ixmucane the gift of solving people's problems. With time people started making dolls in Ixmucane's honor and they would tell her their woes, hoping she would solve them through the dolls. Many people whisper to the dolls, then place them under their pillows at night, hoping that the doll will provide a solution as they sleep.

This heart of worry dolls, is hanging just outside my Giuseppe room. They are to leave their worries with the dolls,, before entering the bedroom. Sleep, peacefully, and be refreshed. It looks so sweet, on the wall. It s also unique!
