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.

"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.
