Each Mayan woman creates her own delightfully unique rendition of the Holy Family, with Mary wearing traditional Mayan traje, consisting of huipil (shirt), faja (belt) and corte (skirt). Handmade soft sculpture with 3 figures: Mary, Joseph and Baby Jesus. Figures vary in color and may vary slightly in size. Handmade and fair trade from Guatemala.
- Felted wool
- Approximately 6.5 - 7" high for adult figures
While each Mayan Hands group has its own story and personality, there are some things that they all share. They live in rural areas, in adobe houses, have outhouses, running water in the pila (outdoor concrete sink used for everything), and electricity. In many ways that means they are in better shape than the poorest of the poor here. But they are no longer in that category because of their work with Mayan Hands.
