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 Kuna Mola measures about 31" x 17".
Folks, some time ago I bought a box of molas from the children of missionaries that served in the San Blas Islands in the 1950-1960 period. The Islands are home to the Kuna mola artists so of course they became collectors.
This mola is in excellent condition for its age. It reminds me of days gone by when as a child I could rent a horse on the Santa Clara beach for an hour for 50 cents. That tells you how old I am.
Now for the particulars. This is an unusual find indeed. If it appears to be two molas put together it is. Why they are sewn together beats me because they have nothing in common as far as design is concerned. I rarely see one like this but with a seam ripper they can easily be divided. Or keep them together knowing no one in the world has anything remotely similar. I shot a number of photos so you can get up close and personal.
Right above the Dragon's head is a loose stitch. It is easily fixed.
I see it in a Yacht Club dining room but put it where you may.
