Hand Sewn Panama Kuna Mola
The Kuna people travel island to island in cayucos. So the paddle is part of daily life. I imagine that is why this artist decided to feature her means of transport.
"29, 30 Switch!" There are those out there who will understand this.
Molas are undoubtedly the most famous Art produced in Panama. The Kuna Women have been sewing these works of Art for years. They incorporate them into their clothing, usually with one Mola serving as the front of the blouse and another for the back. The Mola is often described as a reverse appliqué. For each color of cloth that you see there is a piece of cloth of that color sewn into the Mola. Each Mola is hand-stitched with thousands of stitches. The theme of the Mola is determined by the imagination of the artist.
Our representatives personally know the Kuna artists and have purchased thousands of Molas so that you too can appreciate this rare and delicate art form. The only REAL Molas are the hand-sewn Molas of the Kuna people.
While there are two photos this is one mola.
Every mola is a one-of-a-kind treasure.
