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 until the crisis is over. 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 hasta que termine la crisis. 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 basket measures about 3.5" tall and has a 18" circumference.
This is another of my antiquish-looking baskets. I probably have had this basket in inventory for nearly 20 years. Every now and then I go to the 20-30 boxes of old baskets I still have and dig out a few memories. I bought these baskets back when I use to go to the Darien rainforest and trade cooking oil, bras, panties, powdered milk and certain tools for the baskets. Those were the days... Today I show up in Panama City, let a few folks know I am in town and the artists all come to the hotel. Yeah, the government paved the road. It is a lot easier today but the thrill is gone.
However, I have a lot of fond memeories for when I grow old. Click for the larger images and you’ll better enjoy this basket.
Each basket is a one-of-a-kind treasure.
