Project Description

Wounaan masterweaver Loida’s new midnight floral basket. The first floral that highlights both a daytime and nighttime floral motif. The motif is divided by black and white backgrounds that clearly separates the two halves of the basket vertically. Loida Mejia is a Wounaan masterweaver, and has created this unique basket design we have never seen before. Big colorful open flowers are outlined in black on the white side, and multi-colored hummingbirds in flight are outlined in white on the black side, making each section pop in both black and white. A masterpiece by a weaver who excels in florals, especially the colorful hummingbirds who often have several colors in each bird.
