These exquisite decorative hand made baskets from split chunga palm leaf and natural dyes are created by the indigenous Wounaan of Panama featuring design themes derived from flora and fauna. In this particular basket, a stylized deep forest scene is depicted – local fauna and tropical foliage – in the typically lyrical convention through which these Native weavers express their interpretation of their natural surroundings.
This lively scence converges into a large blossom on the underneath of the basket: a dazzling mandala-like abstract design.
