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.
We just received a shipment of Wounaan woven baskets and masks. Just in time for Christmas presents. Look for them here in Molamagic as well as Traderbrock.
This is a rare Multi-Color basket. First, it measures 4.5" tall with a 15" circumference. The opening has a 3" diameter.
So where does the title Lightning come from? The ZigZag design reminds me of lightning strikes out over the jungle canopy in Panama. I like to think that is where she got the idea.
Just imagine the twists and turns the artist had to make to create this basket. She is weaving it with a needle and chunga fiber dyed with natural dyes. Just look a the array of colors. And the design... out of this world!
A neighbor of mine, an artist herself suggested these basket weavers are mathematicians whether they know it or not. Keeping track of the count as the design changes is quite a challenge. Imagine keeping track of the design and the colors here.
Don't hesitate. I only have one.
Each basket is a one-of-a-kind treasure.
Shipping is included within the USA.
