Flora and Fauna Basket 004

Sea Turtles

Hand woven by the Wounaan and Emberá tribes from split chunga palm leaf and utilizing natural dyes for colouring. This particular piece was created employing a ‘combed-stitch” – as it is called – due to its technique of creating a “skin” “combed” over the corrugated, coiledinner structure of the basket. This piece features a stylized repetition of lizards and a geometric zig-zag pattern around the top of this basket vessel.

The underside of the basket hides a lovely design surprise where these reptiles create a mandala around a central star motif.
