Visions from
Dreams and Magic
Vivid as tropical flowers, bold as cartoon heroes, electric with life force, molas can be a window into the spirit realm. Some images, like the one alone at the top left, seem to glower like the corner sculpture of a Mayan monument burning under a blood red sun. Like all molas, it is the product of hand stitching. Layers of cotton cloth and thread are the only materials used in the process known as reverse appliqué.
