"Five worry dolls". Thessaloniki (Greece)
Worry dolls: Are small and colorfull dolls traditionally made in Guatemala but you can find in all South America. A person who cannot sleep due to worrying can express their worries to a doll before going to sleep. The doll is thought to worry in the person´s place, thereby the person to sleep peacefully. The person will wake up without their worries, which haven taken away by the doll during the night
I painted this piece because of the current economic situation in Greece, i think maybe the Greeks can't sleep so well because of all their worries so they probably need at least 5 dolls.
