Tribal Designs Basket 012



Earth Tones Contrast

This particularly handsome basket, in a tiny and tight ‘combed’ stitch technique, plays on the interplay of bands and triangles in an earth tones contrast that come together in a whorl pattern on the underside. The silouette of this basket is a particularly elegant squat globe-form with a well defined lip at the opening

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.
