A very special gift for a very special granddaughter

The ingenuity and skill that went into making this basket is extraordinary. My granddaughter will grow up with this reminder of Tucson and the Tohono O'Odham artist who made it.

A Tortugan Tour de Force

With rich color and a lusciously sweet scent of beargrass, this turtle has so much character. A remarkable job of weaving his head and feet. Light in weight yet capable of containing a good deal while entertaining you with every glance.
