Details

Crafted by members of the Lopez Garcia Family of Guatemala, these quitapenas dolls make a wonderful gift for friends or family that tells the recipient you care about their well-being and wish them the best. Quitapenas means "to remove worries" in Spanish; artisan Aura Lopez explains the Mayan worry doll tradition. "My grandparents said that the way to use them was to take the doll out of the bag or wooden box and tell it your problems and fears," she states. "Then, you place the doll under your pillow and, the next day, your problem becomes smaller or can be resolved." The set consists of two pairs of male and female worry dolls joined together by a red heart. Handmade, the dolls are dressed in vividly-colored traditional Guatemalan attire and arrive in a pouch of handwoven cotton fabric.

I bought the mini dolls. I was so excited to see this lager size. Painted box is a gift in itself. I tuck them in cards, gifts, prayer boxes.

I love these worry dolls. There were an excellent value and I am giving (some of them) as gifts to my closest friends during this horrendous virus pandemic. Definitely recommend them. They are quality and beautiful!

I purchased these as a gift for my friends that supported me when my husband was in the hospital. They were angels and they each received their own angel . They loved them!
