Notes

Exhibitions:
"Patterns Past and Present: Arts of Panama" at the Samuel P. Harn Museum of Art. This early mola includes a motif that was often repeated, of frogs. Frogs and other amphibians fascinated Kuna people because of their ability to live in the water and on land. Because they produce many offspring at once, they are a symbol of fertility. The patterned cloth behind the solid red layer indicates that this is an older mola.
