Bronze with Geometrics
This lovely ‘amphora’-shaped, small basket features a traditional ‘greco’ geometric design in the stitch work – designs often seen in the repetoire of applied traditional body designs of the Embera and Wounaan.
Exquisitely made from split chunga palm leaf and using dyes from organic resources (employing 2 tones – a naturally dyed bronze tone and black). A natural basket such as this is typical intricate work of the indigenous basket weavers of Panama.
