Details

A modern Maria wears colorful clothing and ribbons in her hair. Adriana Trejo depicts the traditional Mexican Otomi Maria dolls in hand-beaded earrings. The charming doll originated in Mexico City when many Otomi and Mazahua people migrated to the capital in the 1970s. Due to their unique traditional clothing, the women became known as "Marias." An educational program was established for them and artist Diego Rivera's daughter, Guadalupe Rivera Marin, encouraged crafting these popular rag dolls as a way to generate income in the 1980s. Artisan women took the idea home to their Mazahua and Otomi towns, and the dolls became popular throughout Mexico and abroad.

"A special gift"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Its more even more beautiful than in the photo. The colors are vibrant and it lays nicely across the collar bone when worn. It took me a long time to find a Huichol necklace that was narrow at the neck with a medium width pendant, the wide ones are too big for a petite woman. You want to wear a necklace... you dont want a necklace wearing you! This Starry Huichol necklace is perfect!
