Bird Plumage: Embroidered Molas of Guna Collection of Harry Cross -  Pacific Northwest Quilt & Fiber Arts Museum  •   La Conner, Washington
March 27, 2019 - June 23, 2019

Mola, which originally meant bird plumage, is the Guna Indian word for clothing, specifically blouse, and the word mola has come to mean the elaborate embroidered panels that make up the front and back of a Guna woman’s traditional blouse.

The Guna have been making their art works for over centuries now and are pretty skilled in it. Because they where a nomad tribe back in the days they did not make much art in forms like statues or buildings but they did decorate themselves with their artworks.
