Vintage Wounaan Embera Woven Basket-Panama 105752

$ 39.99

This woven Basket measures 4.5" tall and has a 17" circumference.

I bought this basket in the early 1990's and it looked old then. The design is unusual an extensive for a Wounaan or Embera basket. One feature worth knowing is this basket is signed. No, not with a pen or paint. It is signed around the neck where you will find five stitches with a special color chunga fiber. The reason the artists do this is because in the old days the artists came in on buses and their baskets were on top in toe sacks. This signature helped the artist identify her baskets.
