African faces on a layered backdrop of cotton fabric, quilted in an ethnic design, embelished with wool and a scroll design to tie in with the faces. The faces are done in the traditional mola way. Molas are hand-made using a reverse appliqué technique. Several layers (usually two to eleven) of different coloured cloth (usually cotton) are sewn together; the design is then formed by cutting parts of each layer away. The edges of the layers are then sewn down.

Part of a private collection in the USA.
