Panama is in total lockdown. No tourists, no sales, no food, no medicine. That is what is happening to the Kuna, Wounaan and Embera tribes in Panama. We have worked with them since 1990 and know they are desperate. Traderbrock, Molamagic and Molamadness will match all sales revenue and use it to purchase molas, tagua carvings and baskets for the next 60 days. We have church pastors and others that sell regularly to us via photos and payment through Western Union. The art is shipped through the mail. We have been doing this for years but now it is critical to help the poorest of the poor. Please share this message with your friends.
Panamá está en un encierro total. Sin turistas, sin ventas, sin comida, sin medicinas. Eso es lo que les está pasando a las tribus Kuna, Woumaan y Embera en Panamá. Hemos trabajado con ellos desde 1990 y sabemos que están desesperados. Traderbrock, Molamagic y Molamadness igualarán todos los ingresos de ventas y lo utilizarán para comprar molas, tallas de tagua y cestas durante los próximos 60 días. Tenemos pastores de iglesias y otros que nos venden regularmente a través de fotos y pagos a través de Western Union. El arte se envía por correo. Hemos estado haciendo esto durante años, pero ahora es fundamental ayudar a los más pobres de los pobres. Por favor, comparta este mensaje con sus amigos.
This carved wooden mask measures 19" long and 8" across.
Folks, this is an example of what keeps me going to Estate Sales. Why heirs don't want these treasures is beyond me but I hope they don't change.
I suspect this mask is from Africa but I have no concrete evidence. The seller said Africa but she wasn't any more certain than I am.
Hey, once it is up on the wall and smiling down at you as it grants your ever wish...what do you care.
The photos will tell you the rest of the story.
I just added a photo of the reverse side. It shows the woods actual color. What the artist did was stain the front and then when it was etched with the design the color of the wood reappeared. Neat trick. On the reverse side down at the bottom you might mistaken that cut out as damage. No, it is an intentional cut. Why... beats me but it is fine.
