Layered Meanings: Kuna Indian Mola Textiles from Panama
in Community

Monday March 24th, 2014 at 9:30AM
until Sunday June 1st, 2014

The "Layered Meanings" exhibition at the Longyear Museum of Anthropology features beautifully handcrafted mola textiles by the Kuna Indian women of Panama.

Molas are appliqué and reverse-appliqué textiles that constitute the front and back panels of women’s blouses among the Kuna people in the San Blas Islands (Kuna Yala) of Panama. The original mola designs, based on body painting, were geometric and limited to two colors. Nowadays, molas are typically brilliantly multicolored and illustrate local flora and fauna, everyday activities, indigenous and Christian religious practices, folktales, transportation, and common objects such as garments and tools. The images draw on Kuna experiences of both traditional and modern life.

The exhibition continues through June 1. Museum hours are Monday - Thursday, 9:30am - 4:30pm, and by appointment. To schedule an appointment for tours, group visits, or to visit the museum on off-hours, call 315-228-7184 or 315-228-7184.

Admission is free and open to the public.
