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.
This basket measures 4.5" tall and has a 13" circumference.
During the pandemic we have been buying baskets, tagua and molas hand over fist to help our friends of thirty years. If you are a fan of these arts stay tuned because we are listing them in Molamagic and Traderbrock.
We want to thank those of you that read our appeal and bought our art in support of the artists.
This gorgeous Wounaan Basket is just about as good as they get. Look closely at the weave. It is an extraordinary wonder and suited for the serious collector.
Something special is that small Red stitch on the bottom. It is basically a signature. The artists occasionally mark their baskets with a colored stitch so if there is a dispute about ownership it is their proof. They will have a witness to verify it.
Why is this necessary? Because at times baskets get mixed up coming in on the bus to go to the markets.
