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 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.

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 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.
Vintage Kuna Indian Fish Mola-Panama 3.98393

Vintage Kuna Indian Fish Mola-Panama 3.98393

$ 24.99

This mola measures 13.5" x 19".

Folks, this mola is vintage. It has both machine and hand-stitching which tells me it is from the 1960's or 1970's. Why? Because it was back then that a Peace Corps Volunteer group thought it would help the Kuna mola artists make molas faster, etc. if they used sewing machines. Well, the market said no. Folks wanted hand stitching. Some of this old machine stitchers show up from time to time. I figure this is one of them.

It is best suited for a serious collector who follows the culture of the Kunas. Don't buy it to add to your wedding dress or you are liable to see old Fred head for the hills.
