Older, Rare Insect Pattern Basket - Tohono O'Odham
Rare, collectible "Insect" design basket by Mary Salina, measuring 10.25 inches in diameter.
This design on this piece is woven from a scarce material: Banana Yucca root. Yucca root is only taken from a plant that has fallen over, the plant will not be dug up to obtain the root.
All plant materials are hand gathered from the Sonoran Desert for basket weaving. Interior coils are native Beargrass and the white around the coils are sun-bleached Soaptree Yucca.
Keep away from sunlight to maintain color variations.
