Reverse Applique Panamanian Mola with Wildcat Puma - image 1 of 4

This hand-appliqued textile is made of several layers of different colored fabrics. It is traditional Kuna folk art from the San Blas Islands off the coast of Panama. The Kuna use these small textiles on the fronts and backs of shirts and blouses worn everyday. Molas utilize reverse appliqué, and the Kuna are masters of the craft. The stitches are tiny and meticulous. This older mola is 13 1/2" X 17." The design is an abstract cat, or puma, with white eyes. This colorful mola has a striking design. It shows a bit of wear and fading; it was part of a shirt at some point in its past.
