A pair of worry dolls holding hands from the tradition of the Guatemalan worry dolls.
They remind us that a worry shared is a worry halved, and that a wonderful way to ease our worries is to share them with a good friend.
About Worry Dolls An old story tells that when the Maya People of Guatemala had worries, they would them to the worry people. At night they would place the worry people under their pillows and when they awoke, the worry people had taken their worries away. This handmade product has been made by the Maya People who live in the highlands of Guatemala. They make their living from agriculture in the rural areas of the country and are often dependent on alternative forms of income.
Size of Worry Dolls (Each): Approximately 55-60mm in total length.
Made in Guatemala.
