A petite framed kuna mola, the traditional Panamanian costume, which depicts the most intriguing symbolism of a pair of two-headed birds with red eyes. There is even more detailing in the form of multicolored stitching all around their head and neck areas. The mola, requiring a high level of craftsmanship, is created by sewing together several layers of vibrant fabric, cutting away small strips, and using a reverse applique technique to hide the stitches. The result is a multi-dimensional textile with depth and vibrant rainbow hues..
