An adorable, reverse appliqued mola sea turtle brought to life & filled with all natural, long lasting French lavender buds.. chosen for their delicious aroma and therapeutic benefits!

This striking turtle sports a hand sewn, rich red spiral.. an archetypal, traditional mola design dating back to very early Kuna Indian artwork. Some say the spiral is the world's oldest symbol. LOVE to incorporate it in many of my designs.

Note the wonderful embroidery! Very cool how the artist created a reptilian look with her skillful stitchery. All by hand...

One of the oldest reptiles on the planet, Turtle Spirit represents Mother Earth and is a symbol of wisdom, patience and long life.


Two+ full layers of traditional reverse applique mola, beautifully hand stitched by a very gifted Kuna Indian artist in Kuna Yala, The San Blas Islands eastern Panama.

• 5 3/4" high x 5 1/2" across x 2 " thick
