A "mola" is a cloth art design, hand sewn by the Kuna Indians from the San Blas Islands of Panama. Each panel of material is sewn with two to seven layers of different colored cloth. Molas have a very 3 dimensional effect. Brightly colored, and beautiful designs--most popular designs are fish and bird patterns. The Kuna Indian women use this beautiful artwork as part of their wardrobe.
