This particularly handsome basket, in a tiny, tight ‘roll stich’ technique, plays on the interplay of black/ochre tonal gradients over a blue-grey background through a ‘double greco’ pattern that makes up this basket’s dynamic woven composition. The silouette of the basket is a particularly elegant squat vase-form.
These exquisite split chunga palm leaf and natural dyes basket work of the indigenous Wounaan of Panama feature geometric designs and other abstract design elements related to patterns from the traditional body painting that the Wounaan still practice.
