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.
Folks, remember back in the early 90’s when Haitians were popping up all over Florida? Well, some of these migrants had the good sense to go to Panama. They arrived with leather goods and paintings. That is when I got involved with Haitian artists. Today some of the Haitian artists are still in Panama and have established themselves as painters. I decided during our recent trip to pick up some of their art and see if there is a market for it. So here we goooo....This painting measures 10.5" x 11". I can’t claim to know much about it because it is all in the eye of the beholder. But I can tell you that it is on canvas, the paint is raised in the design and it is an interesting change from other paintings I have from Haiti.
