Grand Whorl Design
The exquisite split chunga palm leaf and natural dyes basket work of the indigenous Wounaan of Panama often feature geometric designs and other abstract design elements related to patterns used in their traditional body painting that the tribe practice to date.
This handsome oversize basket features a pleasing yet intense grand whorl geometric pattern. The pattern in the stitch work comes together like a hurricane form underneath in a whirling pinwheel-like design. This vessel basket’s ‘pot-bellied’ silouette and thin-walled construction brings to this piece a sublime elegance.
