This colour and design-intense oversize geometric woven basket achieves a spectacular repeated and harmonious chevron decoration using a striking colour palette.
Many stitch designs feature geometric patterns and other abstract design elements related to such motifs from the traditional body painting that the Wounaan still practice. These exquisite decorative baskets made from split chunga palm leaf, and coloured with natural dyes, are hand woven by the indigenous Wounaan and Embera of Panama.
Anywhere that this piece is displayed in a space will immediately draw the eye over to it and its environs.
