A unique basket design – simply the weaver’s playful abstraction – features a puzzling, repeated geometric design, and it is at once traditional, as well as contemporary.
Within the design, dark brown couples with two scarlet-coloured tones over an earthy grey. The patience needed to execute such a piece is hard to come by in today’s world! Collectors and indigenous arts aficionados will appreciate the intricate work of this basket design.
These hand woven and exquisite split chunga palm leaf decorative baskets, colored with natural dyes, are painstakingly produced by the indigenous Wounaan of Panama. Masters of their craft in the art of basketry, the Wounaan feature their own tribal designs and other abstract design elements.
