Marlin Fish Theme

This particularly well executed handwoven ‘combed-stitch’ basket features a unique theme: repeated marlin fish among coral. The thin-walled, “amphora” form is elegant and the theme is unique in the repetoire of this venerable tribal art form.

These exquisite decorative baskets, handmade from split chunga palm leaf and natural dyes by the indigenous Wounaan tribe, features design themes derived from the flora and fauna of Wounaan’s territory in the Darien region of Panama.
