Dressed in a variety of colorful dresses, 100 Guatemalan worry dolls are here to preserve ancient Maya traditions. For the Lopez Garcia Family, crafting the cotton worry dolls - munequitas quita penas - is their main source of income.

Product Features:
Story Behind the Art:
'My name is Aura Lopez and my family creates quitapena, or 'worry dolls,' which are traditional in Guatemala and Mexico. According to legend, the Maya princess Ixmucane received a gift from the sun god, making her able to resolve any person's problem. Later, people began creating dolls with whom they'd share their problems. They've become very popular. 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. Then, you place the doll under your pillow and, the next day, your problem becomes smaller or can be resolved. This work has unified us as a family. It has given us group goals to meet and the opportunity to exhibit our work. We feel there are people around the world who value them and this makes us very happy.'
