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.
Wounaan Embera White Tagua Dyed Gecko Carving-Panama 15100927L

Wounaan Embera White Tagua Dyed Gecko Carving-Panama 15100927L

$ 29.99

Folks, This is one of about a dozen white or natural tagua carvings I am going to upload today. Tagua is commonly referred to as vegetable ivory. And for good reason, it look just like it.  But the best news is it comes from a renewable nut that grows on a palm. 

The nuts are about the size of a child's fist. The artists usually paint the carvings with fine india inks but I get a number of calls for the natural carvings so here we go. 

This one is of a dyed Gecko.  What we have here is a white carving that has been dunked in a cocobolo wood chip dye. The tagua carvers like to try basket fiber dye on their carvings. 

This is a particularly good carving.
