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.

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 cocobolo wood carving stands 7." tall.
There is a dozen cocobolo wood carvings all listed nearby. They are old. I call them primitive carvings because they were carved in the early 1990"s. In those days the tools began with a machete and ended with sandpaper. There were't many other tools to work with then. Perhaps a pocket knife. If the carving was polished it was done with shoe polish. You could know a cocbolo wood carver by his hands. They were stained by the wood and the polish.
These carvings have not been polished, at least by me and I doubt if they were ever polished because I bought them out in the Darien rainforest. The artists dragged the shoe polish out only if they were going to take the carvings to Panama City for sale.
What you see is what you get!!! Think gift.
