Tribal Designs Basket 009

Snake Skin Design

This well executed Wounaan geometric basket with a handsome and bold snake skin design features a technically demanding patterning about the whole surface of this piece. This intricacy is acheived through incredibly tiny and dense stitchwork. The final touch, adding to this basket’s elegance, is its lovely squat silouette reminiscent of Pueblo pots!

This exquisite Wounaan geometric design basket of split chunga palm leaf and natural dyes and other baskets of geometrical design made by the indigenous Wounaan of Panama, feature abstract design elements related to patterns from the traditional body painting that the Wounaan still practice today and the artistic fancy of the individual weavers.
