Framed Worry Doll Wreath 1HANDMADE IN GUATEMALA
Worry dolls are incredible pieces of a traditional Guatemalan legend. According to the tradition the doll worries about the problem instead of the person, allowing the person to sleep peacefully. In Guatemalan culture, these little figures were originally intended to alleviate children’s nightmares, but today it’s also common for adults to use them.

This framed wreath measures 38 cm long x 38 cm wide. Each worry doll is made by hand in Guatemala using a base of wood or wire. Their faces are made from cotton and their clothing with wool or aguayo, a traditional Guatemalan cloth.
