Museum Quality Kuna Mola - Ex Parker Neal Collection - Fishing Scene:

Collection of Ann Parker and Avon Neal. Molas. Folk Art of the Cuna Indians, is one of the most important mola books ever written. Ann Parker and Avon Neal were a couple who teamed together to write a number of books on folk art. They made numerous trips to the San Blas Islands, starting in 1965. Their focus was on "story telling" molas, with a particular emphasis on acculturated molas that found their inspiration in western culture -- magazine ads, billboards and comic books. I have the privilege of helping Ann Parker sell a number of the molas from their collection.
