Made by Herminia Gonzales, Kanwasumi/Medewa Cooperatives, Southern Venezuela. Each basket comes with information on the Ye'kwana Culture and the Environment of the Lowland Tropical Forest where they live. 10-1/2" tall x 10-1/4' diameter at top.
The hourglass shape of this basket is based on the shape of the much larger traditional women's burden basket that is carried on her back with a band across her forehead. The women have innovated this small basket decorated with animals of the forest, such as the monkey design and other cultural icons.
