Every once in a while, an old and interesting ceremonial basket crosses our threshold. Such was the case with this deep and texturally impressive double weaving. Its interwoven plant fiber just feels good. The beauty of the golden, sun- kissed patina it has acquired through time only adds to its appeal. It was woven sometime in the 1960s and, unfortunately, the name of the artist was undocumented. The addition of the tiny basket and tarnished silver button is compelling and aesthetically pleasing. Whoever the weaver was, she created a most unusual and attractive basket.
