Panamanian Mola - Animals in Eyeglasses

Central America, Panama, San Blas Islands, Kuna/Cuna, second half of the 20th century CE. This is a fun example of this folk art form created by Kuna women. Its main focus are two large animals - maybe foxes? - with huge, bushy tails and wearing eyeglasses. Small bird heads have been applied around the design. Molas are cloth panels attached to the fronts and backs of women's blouses that are the cultural dress of Kuna women, along with gold nose rings, beaded arm and leg bands, and patterned wrap-around skirts. Size of mola on backing: 17.5" W x 13" H (44.4 cm x 33 cm)
