A fabulous Spirit Fish molita ( small mola ) in 3+ full layers of gorgeous, superbly hand stitched reverse applique!

This unusual fabric folk art design features a bright yellow skeleton which makes it different.. and so much more interesting! It alludes to the fish's spirit or essence like other 'Spirit Molas' do.

It is a real treat to run your hand over this excellent work of textile art.. wonderful bas relief.. thick and weighty. I love everything about this mola.. it certainly is a special one! Really sweeeet !! (='.'=)

Colors are rich.. vibrant on dramatic black. Really striking!

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 adorable Spirit Fish!
