Kokopelli Plate - Tohono O'odham
This open stitch handwoven basket is by Tohono O'Odham artist Della Cruz from Sells, Arizona. This basket measures approximately 10.5 inches in diameter and is approx. 3 inches deep, with an unusual, open scalloped rim.
Plant materials are hand gathered from the Sonoran Desert. Inner coils are native Beargrass and the split stitches are of sun-bleached and unbleached Soaptree Yucca. The red material used for the Kokopelli figure is a rare material, Banana Yucca root, and the black material used for other details is from Devil's Claw pods. Keep away from sunlight to maintain color variations.
