Vintage Mola Needlework Appliqué by San Blas Cuna Indians of Panama

Date: 1950's - 1960's
Size: 16" x 23"
Condition: excellent
Description: Molas were and are made by the San Blas Cuna Indians of Panama. It is a very intriqite pattern of multi-colored and multi-layered pieces of appliiquéd cloth, each edge hand-sewn in place stitch by stitch. Many of the newer ones you see today are of animals, but this one is a symbolic abstracted shape. It has a very nice old patina, the cloth faded just so to give it a lovely soft quality.
