holy molas

A client brought in these colorful molas:  souvenirs from her trip to Panama.  Molas are executed using layers of fabric:  the more layers, the finer the work.  This last one has about seven layers.  I love that there is variety here:  of art sizes, frame colors, and mat widths, but I would say all the frames have a tropical handmade quality about them.  Three received suede mats which just have a great saturation of color--all together this is a really fanciful display.
