Details

Diminutive worry dolls in handwoven apparel stand shoulder to shoulder on a cheerful and unique wreath. Elias Garcia links two circles to suggest the solidarity of different families, communities and cultures. The dolls are crafted by his sister of the Lopez Garcia family. Centered by a wooden plaque reading "Friends Forever," this charming design hangs from a golden cord.

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.

"Beautifully made, worthy of its place on my shelf!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

When we do house swaps, it really looks as though I am a world traveler. I have decorated an entire shelf with the set of boxes and worry dolls along with this worry doll mirror. Together the mirror and the worry dolls look just beautiful!!! Of course, the mirror would stand alone all by itself!!!!!

"Family Heirloom"

I am passing on a tradition that began with my grandmother. She began a collection of Worry Dolls for me, with the advice that I let the dolls carry all of my worries. I am passing on the dolls and the advice to my own granddaughters. This beautiful piece is a source of strength as well as joy. Barbara McLoone

"Worry doll wreath"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This wreath is beautiful and so well-made. I bought it to replace a wreath I had bought on a trip to Guatemala many years ago. The heart shape is adorable and the worry dolls are so cute. I love what they symbolize. Every time I look at this wreath, I smile. No worries!
