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.

"Worry Dolls Heart wreath"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

During this time of social distancing with the covid19 pandemic, Ive done a lot of worrying about the health of my family & friends, as well as myself. When I saw this worry doll heart wreath I knew I had to have it. I will turn over some of that worry to these dolls to lift my spirits! It is beautifully made and a delight to have hanging in my home. Special thanks to Elias Garcia who made my wreath! I love it!
