Two Mayan friendship worry dolls / people on a gift card handmade in Guatemala.
• These worry dolls are dressed in bright, traditional Mayan colours and are holding hands in friendship. The material used is recycled fabric and cotton offcuts.
• They are presented on a gift card – which details the story of the worry dolls and the people who make them, on the back.
• Each doll has a gold heart on their chest (not shown in some of the images).
• Among the Mayan Highland villages in Guatemala a legend is being told!
• It says that when you have a problem, just share it with a worry doll. Before you go to sleep, share each worry with a doll and then place them underneath your pillow. While you are asleep, the dolls will take all your worries away!
• Part of a range of themed spiritual products. (Click on the “Worry Dolls” Tag above to reveal the selection. And check out the “You may also like” product suggestions below.)
