Such fabulous, vibrant color in a museum quality mola fish! Collaborative & specially hand sewn as a wonderful work of fabric folk art.

The applique work is soooo well executed.. obviously hand sewn by a very skilled hand! It has a wonderfully tactile feel w/ extraordinary bas relief!

Beautifully hand stitched reverse applique by a very gifted Kuna Indian artist in 'Kuna Yala', The San Blas Islands, Panama.. using the same time honored techniques handed down from Kuna mother to daughter for generations.

Limited edition.. Definitely museum quality. A terrific tribal textile in gorgeous, rich colors!


THE DETAILS:

• Size : approx 8 1/2 across x 7 1/4 " rectangle

Old school molas like this.. in these gorgeous colors and of this high quality.. are rare! I specialize in them and work with an incredibly talented group of Kuna artists. Happy to offer you this Fabulous Fish!

A wonderful addition to any mola collection!
