Elegant perfection in a rib stitch fish-hook design. Includes a small, round signature disk and photos of the artist, Requita Pena, holding her work. Displayed on a custom black powder-coated stand. This masterful coil construction work is created using thin shreds of Chunga palm fibers dyed into various colors, coiled over thicker Naguala palm. Vibrant and rich colors are all vegetal dyes created with roots, berries, leaves, river silt, and natural materials found in the abundant Darien rainforest.
