Dear Customer,
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.

Estimado cliente,
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.


Kuna Indian Hand-Stitched Optical Illusion MoIa-Panama 20050829mm

Regular price $59.99

This Kuna Mola measures 18" x 16". 

Folks, I bought a collection of molas from the family of a couple missionaries that served in the San Blas Islands during the period 1950-1970. These molas are not only vintage but they are still bright. That tells me they were stored in darkness.

This particular mola sports what call an opticall Illusion. The two birds are clearly present but that is just the start. Lean back and stare at the whites of its eyes. Right below the bird's beaks a nose has arose. Below the nose is a gaping mouth. The tail feathers become ears and Wala!! See the face? Or is it time for my medicine? 

Shipping is included within the USA.
