This is a mola, a handmade work made up of several cut and sown pieces of cloth that the Kuna women of the San Blas Islands make for their traditional blouses, here, the bottom most cloth was a children’s bed sheet of Dragon Ball Z and that the designs printed were kept as an integral part of the work.

Coat of arms of Panama. Although the San Blas Islands are an autonomous indigenous territory, this archipelago falls under the jurisdiction of Panama.

 
 

It is possible that the woman who designed this mola does not know who this fat bearded man represents.
