They do look like Molas, Lulu!
Q, are some of these Molas? My brother brought me several Molas from his last trip to Panama. They are really from the Kuna people who live on San Blas, an island near Panama, if I remember correctly what he told me. Molas have an interesting history. Kuna women once painted their bodies with intricate designs but, once they were "Christianized" they had to wear clothes. They then made molas or panels of the previous paint designs and incorporated them into their shirts. The process of making the molas is fascinating. As a stitchery devotee, you might like to read up on it. Thanks, again.
