Mola – ‘Mythic’ Design
This previously-worn mola features a complex, abstract design of a pair of quasi-organic forms – expressed duality and elements shown in pairs is a general feature of Kuna traditional expression as in this particular hand made authentic traditional mola (layered and quilted blouse panel). Molas, from certain regions of Panama and Colombia, are highly prized by collectors of ethnographic objects and expression and can be seen in different museums around then world, including the Smithsonian Institute Museum.
