French designer Hélène Breebaart and the Italian architect Carla Brusa, passionate about the hand-appliqué mola made by the Guna Indians, have created an event: Mola – Arte sin Fronteras. The celebration of native heritage will showcase the Guna culture combined with Western traditions. The event is organized as a part of the celebration of the 500 years of the discovery of the Southern Sea (Pacific Ocean) by the Spanish Conquistador Vasco Nuñez de Balboa.
