Butterflies on Black
Composed with very small and tightly packed, hand woven stitches creating a basketry of thin walls, this would be a piece sought after by collectors as a finer example of the hosig di Wounaan baskets. This lovely piece, with its juxtaposed elements of vividly coloured tropical butterflies on black background, makes a delightful added presence in any space.
These exquisite decorative baskets, handmade from split chunga palm leaf and natural dyes by the indigenous Wounaan of Panama, features design themes derived from the flora and fauna of the Wounaan’s territory in the Darien region of Panama.
