Specially made, rare Pre-Colombian mola bird design in crisp black and white!

Museum quality!

SO well sewn and so tactile with a wonderful bas relief. The applique & stitchery is fabulous.. all done in very old school reverse applique! Hand sewn using the same traditional techniques handed down from Kuna mother to daughter for generations.

Small black and white molas of this quality are really hard to find & in an unusual design such as this one.. very very rare. A FANTASTIC tribal textile!

A wonderful addition to any mola collection!
