Panama Mola Shot in Action

May 27, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

I was so happy to find one of my photos used in a brochure. Most of the time, when a stock photo is downloaded you never know where it will end up. Panamanian Molas are exquisitely handcrafted by members of the Kuna people of Panama. The designs, usually depicting animals, nature or abstract patterns are painstakingly stitched by hand. Molas are highly coveted by both tourists and locals and traditionally presented as framed art, but have now become popular on everything from handbags, to glasses cases, clothing and home decor. In this case the colorful Mola pattern in my photo was used as part of the art for a travel excursion brochure to Panama, Colombia and Costa Rica. Here are a few screenshots of the pamphlet and the original shot. Have you ever been to Panama, Costa Rica or Colombia? If you have, what was your favorite part of the trip?
