Dear Customer,
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.

Estimado cliente,
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.
Vintage Wounaan Indian Frog Tagua Carving-Panama 21042506L

Vintage Wounaan Indian Frog Tagua Carving-Panama 21042506L

$ 24.99

Here is another vintage natural tagua carving that has been dunked in a light colored cocobolo dye. The color brown is made by boiling cocobolo wood chips. The dye is normally used on

or the basket fiber the Wounaan woman use to make their fine baskets. Occasionally a husband or brother will dunk a white tagua carving to see what he will get. Here is a good result.

What is special to me is that the artist left touches of the tagua nut’s outer covering on the carving as clear evidence that this is a true tagua carving.

Every tagua carving is a one-of-a-kind treasure.
