Checker Board Design
A marvellous design of sheer elegance, demanding of a lot of skill and patience, a lively checker board design in bold colours makes this basket most eye-catching. Collectors and indigenous arts aficionados will appreciate the intricate work of this basket design and pleasing form (the bottom of this piece is incredible).
These hand woven and exquisite split chunga palm leaf decorative baskets, colored with natural dyes, are painstakingly created by the indigenous Wounaan weavers of Panama. Masters of their craft in the art of basketry, the Wounaan feature their own tribal designs and other abstract design elements.
