Elegant Geometric Traditional Design
This is a classic, elegant basket form with a traditional geometric composition – a repeated saw-tooth pattern over the piece’s surface – a flawless repetition of minute geometric shapes. The spectacular resulting pattern, the thin walls, plus this basket’s handsome vertical silouette denotes weaving of the highest caliber by these highly accomplished Native basket weavers of the Darién region of Panama.
These decorative baskets handwoven by Panama’s indigenous tribe, the Wounaan, are made from split chunga palm leaf and natural dyes and feature geometric designs and other abstract design elements.
