Wounaan Indian Hand Woven Large B&W Basket -Panama 20101517mm
We just received a shipment of Wounaan woven baskets and masks. Just in time for Christmas presents. Look for them here in Molamagic as well as Traderbrock.
This is a rare Black & White basket. First, it is large measuring 9" tall with a 32.5" circumference. The opening has a 6" diameter.
Just imagine the twists and turns the artist had to make to create this basket. She is weaving it with a needle and chunga fiber dyed with natural dyes. In this case Black which comes from a special soil or mud the artists use.
A neighbor of mine, an artist herself suggested these basket weavers are mathematicians whether they know it or not. Keeping track of the count as the design changes is quite a challenge. Imagine keeping track of the spiral design here.
Don't hesitate. I only have one.
Each basket is a one-of-a-kind treasure.
Shipping is included within the USA.
