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.
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.
This Kuna Painting measures 16.5" x 12".
Folks, what we have here is something special. I have a whole collection of paintings that were removed from the Hotel Contadora in Panama.
Contadora is an Island about fifty miles off the coast of Panama. Like out in the Pacific. It is a resort area today and an absolute paradise. It gained some fame when Patty Hearst and the Shah of Iran hung out there for awhile. I learned to scuba dive there.
Anyway, a Kuna artist apparently got the commission to paint these paintings for the hotel rooms. That is why several are similar. But the day came for the hotel to be torn down to make way for progress. It just happened that some missionary friends of mine were living there and were able to save these gems from destruction. That was sometime ago. They offered them to me and I bought them.
Now I am going to share them with you. Keep your eyes on Traderbrock and our sister store Traderbrock II. I'll put them up has fast as my 74 year-old eyes and hands will permit. Now let's see...oh yeah, Nap Time!!
