A strong tapered geometric by a male weaver, Chong, which is rare in the Wounaan community of weavers. Chong decorated this piece with alternating bands of inward facing , crowned swirls of Greek keys. A beautifully woven piece with a strong design and very modern vessel shape.
Geometric motifs draw their inspiration from multiple sources, including pre-Colombian textiles, ceramics and rock art. Baskets woven with these designs are often referred to as cultural, due to the fact that a large part of their inspiration stems from body paintings and patterns on spiritual paraphernalia used by village shamans.
