Mola #1 horse fabric pannel

Donor(s): Lauren Haywood

This mola is a handmade fabric panel that forms part of the traditional outfit of the Guna people. The mola originated with the tradition of Guna women painting their bodies with geometric designs, using available natural colors; in later years these same designs were woven in cotton, and later still, sewn using cloth bought from the European settlers of Panamá.
