A fab*u*lous original design fabric folk art fish done in very labor intensive, authentic mola! Filled with deeelicious, long lasting, yummy fragrant French lavender buds!

Colors are really rich and vibrant.. the hand stitched, multi-layered mola applique well executed.. very tactile with extraordinary bas relief! Layer by layer, stitch by tiny stitch.. hand sewn using time honored techniques handed down from Kuna mothers to daughter for generations!

In the Kuna dialect 'fish' is called 'oohwah'. Whatever you want to call it, Purple Prosperity Fish is colorful, fun and oh sooo purple! Backed with the same luscious purple as seen on top.. plus double machine stitched around the edge. Super high quality with great attention to detail!

Symbolizing prosperity in many cultures.. place this fish in your prosperity corner (southwest corner of your house) and see what happens!
