Shapes and Butterflies

This particular decorative plate features a bold design: colourful geometric shapes and butterflies with a stylized central flower.

These decorative wall plates, bowls and disks are made of split chunga palm leaf and natural dyes, reflecting the fine basketry work of the indigenous Emberá weavers of Panama. Design themes are derived from the flora and fauna of Wounaan territory in the Darien region of Panama, as well as geometric motifs derived from the body decorations traditionally applied to men and women alike for particular events.
