I created these figures during a day in the woods, two years ago with the children of Meitar School.

We sat down and created doll’s inspired from the “worry dolls” of guatemalan tradition. Simple doll’s made of twigs picked in the woods and wraped in wool or cotton thread. The tradition tells, that guatemalan children, when they have a hard time sleeping can tell their worries to the doll. They put the doll under the pillow during the night for it to free the child of it’s worries.

I invite you to read this nice story Mayan Trouble Dolls of Guatemala.
