Small Desert Tortoise Basket - Tohono O'Odham

TD405

This handwoven Desert Tortoise basket by Laura Pablo measures approximately 6.75 inches in diameter.

Plant materials are hand gathered from the Sonoran Desert for basket weaving. The interior coils are native Beargrass and the white, closed stitches wrapped around the coils are sun bleached Soaptree Yucca, the green closed stitches that make the body of the Tortoise are unbleached Soaptree Yucca. The tortoise is surrounded an open/split stitch border, making this a small shallow bowl rather than plate. Black Devil's Claw is used for the head and feet and for the basket trim detail. Keep away from sunlight to maintain color variations.

Measurements are approximate.
