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.
The Wounaan tagua carvers are some of the best tagua carvers in the world. We have been buying and selling their tagua carvings for more than 25 years.
This is an interesting anteater carving for several reasons. First, it is white or the natural color of tagua. It clearly shows why tagua is called vegetable ivory. Secondly, it is a vintage carving. I suppose I have had it for 25 years or more. I thought all these treasures had been sold but he was hiding in a box. And lastly, I suspect he was dipped in a Cocobolo sawdust dye that the artist's wife cooked up for her basket fiber. There was a time back then when dyeing tagua and then polishing it was very popular. I don't see it anymore but I still like it.
Every tagua carving is a one-of-a-kind treasure.
