mola– art form developed by the Kuna culture (indigenous people of Panama & Colombia) using a reverse applique technique.
Note- This large mola belongs to my parents. They purchased it in Panama (mid 1960’s) and it has been proudly displayed on a wall of their various homes ever since.

Love molas. My mom grew up in Panama and we had molas sewn onto our Christmas stockings.
Hi Meredith- Do you still have those stockings? I’d love to see them.
