This basket is made from the reeds and bark of the sumac tree. A nice golden patina covers the basket, that clearly shows the new age of the piece. A multi-rod coiling technique is used to make this basket with a herringbone braided rim. The terraced black designs represent mountains, the red ring in the middle often represents the beginning of life. The basket's diameter measures 13 1/2" and the basket measures 3 3/4" deep.
