50s-60s Mola (closed) With Kuna Symbols -- San Blas Kuna Indian Mola:
HAND MADE! This is a small mola for its age, 16.5" x 12.5", four layers, which otherwise looks the age I am estimating.I disassembled the blouse and have the mate. The entire blouse was assembled with hand-sewn stitches. The cuts, channels, and sewing are typical of that time. The blouse has been worn and has a bit of soil. I am not familiar with the design but there appear to be two closed containers filled with Kuna symbols, with Kuna symbols surrounding the containers in every possible location so as to fill the entire surface. Please notice that the Kuna symbol in the bottom right corner is made of a printed fabric. The bottom layer is black ottomano I probably should know what the objects depicted are, but I do not. I hope that an alert er will email me so that I may include that information with my description. I am listing the mate next in my roster because they look wonderful together. I sometimes forget to state that my molas are hand made and what the quality of the stitching is. That is because they are all hand made and the quality of the stitching is always above average. The reason that I was attracted to molas back in the 60s was the stitching. The stories and the designs came later for me. Any questions, just let me know.
