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 beautiful Haitian Art Painting measures 32" x 42". It is a really large painting on canvas ready for framing. I have heard this painting referred to as The Sun, Moon and Stars.
My interest in Haitian art began in the early 1990s. Remember back then when Haitian boat people were coming ashore in Florida? Well, Uncle Sam loaded a large number of them up and shipped them to Panama. The US military prepared compounds on the west side of the canal to house and feed them. Then a large number of Haitians set Panama as their destination and arrived in Panama on tourist visas. They didn't have much money but they did have suitcases full of Haitian art. A Haitian friend of mine named Lucas ended up being a main contact with these folks and he had a bad habit of calling me with this mournful voice, pleading the plight of the new arrivals. "No money, no food, no nuthin' !!" You gott'a buy his art stuff, Mon!!" At one point I had hundreds of leather masks, wood carvings and paintings. But I didn't really mind buying the stuff because the US military community stepped right up and bought it from me. It is strange that even today, seventeen years later, I still have a few of these art items in inventory. Check the store, you'll come across a few.
