"Santa Catarina Palopó is a lovely and welcoming village. The beauty of the lake combined with the artistry of the women and their hupiles makes of this community a magical place worthy of visiting," says Iliana Hernández. The Guatemalan artisan crafts this beautiful display doll by hand with hand-woven cotton for her huipil top and black skirt. Her head, hands and feet are carved of pinewood and her woolen hair is braided under a multicolor woven fabric. The doll wears one cent coin earrings - one displaying Guatemala's coat of arms, and the other side has the face of Fray Bartolomé de las Casas, the Dominican monk who defended the indigenous community from the abuses of the Spanish conquistadors.

Santa Catarina Palopó is situated on the banks of Lake Atitlán, and the women weave their own dresses - in shades of blue to mirror the lake's crystalline waters.

I love this pendant and its detailed work. I wish it had been bigger in diameter and the cord longer, but I will wear it frequently and let folks know about Novica.
