Mola - Snippets of Interest
The Cuna Indians use many kinds of motifs, not only tropical birds and animals or exotic plants, but religious symbols, rockets, sporting events, as well as illustrations from advertisements, for their Molas.
Many Cuna Indians are illiterate and the letters of the alphabet are simply seen as decorative symbols, so letters might be missing or turned upside down.
A Swedish match-box with a parrot and the text: 'Made by Jönköping-Vulcans T.F. AB Sweden' was the inspiration for a Mola, but the text became: 'ADEBYJOPINGS&VULCANSTFABSWEDEN'.
