This mola measures 12" x 16.5". This is an old mola, probably made in the 1960’s or 1970’s. There was a period of time back then when some well-meaning Peace Corps Volunteers introduced sewing machines to the Kunas. The thought was that they could make molas faster. Well, someone overlooked the fact that hand-sewn molas was what the market wanted, even back then. So there was a short period of time that the Kuna artists made machined molas. But when they found the price falling they turned the sewing machines off. Now machine-sewn molas are a bit of a rarity. I buy them because frankly, if you are going to frame them or make pillows, machine sewn makes no difference. Plus their rarity is starting to make a market for them. Some of them are well worn too because the artists made blouses out of most of them.

While there are two photos this is one mola.

Every mola is a one-of-a-kind treasure.
