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 until the crisis is over. 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 hasta que termine la crisis. 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.
Folks, it's a long story. Back in the early 1990's there was serious political trouble in Haiti. You might remember President Clinton sent troops to Haiti to restore order.
Haitians were flooding into Florida. And also Panama. They came with their shirt on their back and some came with suitcases of these leather masks.
I had a Haitian friend named Lucas. He would call me when a refugee showed up with these masks. I must have bought 500 masks before the tide shifted and Haitians quit coming. I sold them into the military community. When I came back to the USA in 1999 I only has a few left. This is one of the few.
It measures 17" long and 11" wide and comes with the leather hole to hang it.
I have never put any leather treatment on them but it might be a good idea.
Shipping is included within the USA.
