Worry dolls are a tradition that comes from Guatemala and has extended through the Latin countries.
They are made of colourful textile leftovers to make them dress in the traditional Mayan style.
The original Guatemalan legend refers to the Muñeca quitapena, a Maya princess named Ixmucane. The princess received a special gift from the sun god which would allow her to solve any problem a human could worry about.
In traditional and modern times, worry dolls are given or lent to brooding, anxious or sorrowful children. They would tell their doll about their sorrows, fears and worries, then hide it under their pillow before going to sleep at night. It is said that the child relinquishes their worries to the dolls during the night and by the next morning, all sorrows are said to have been taken away by the worry doll and they can move forward refreshed the next day.
