Bold Whorl Design
In a handsome four-tone design, this fine basket is an example of the compositional beauty of a typical geometric motif in a dynamic whorl layout.
These traditional basket designs are often references to the traditional body markings of the Wounaan – these are applied with a type of jungle ‘henna’. This basket would make a fitting complement to any home décor.
Exquisite, hand woven baskets available from Galeria Namu are made of split chunga palm leaf and colored with natural dyes created by the indigenous Wounaan of Panama.
