Belize Male with Straw Basket and Worry Dolls on His Head (Close Up Dark Background)

Young Belizean male handcrafted from stuffed cloth. He has button eyes, yarn hair and a mouth made from felt. He is wearing a colorful woven vest. He has a straw basket on head with three worry dolls in the basket. Worry dolls (muñecas quitapenas) are very small, colorful dolls that are popular in South and Central America. According to legend, a child can share his or her worries with the dolls going to sleep, and the doll will take care of the worries. The figure is 10 inches (25 cm) tall.
