This woven Basket measures 4" tall and has a 20" circumference.
I bought this basket in the early 1990's and it looked old then. This is a classic simple design that the Wounaan and Embera basket weavers do. The black lightening-like lines are made using a mud dye. The light color chunga is the natural color of chunga straight from the palm.
Interior designers like these simple designs and colors because they go with just about any decor.
