    I've recently acquired this quilting/needlework piece. I must admit I know nothing about it, other than that I found it aesthetically appealing.

    Do you know anything about this piece/style/artwork?

    Thank you for checking it out!

      "In the west, when we refer to molas, we are talking about intricately patterned “reverse appliqué” textiles produced by the Kuna women of Central America and worn as blouses, though to the Kuna, mola simply means any piece of cloth."
