These interesting and authentic crafts from Guatemala are based around the concept of Worry Dolls, a tradition that runs deep in Mayan culture.
There is a story that when the Mayan people have worries, they tell them to their worry dolls and place the dolls under their pillows at night. In the morning, the worry people will have taken all their worries away!
