Red, green and white diamonds expand and contract around the sides of this geometric piece. They start smaller at the base, widen in the middle and again become smaller at the top, creating a pattern that accentuates the shape. Woven in tiny straight stitches this striking geometric has the details of a traditional design with the colors of a modern one.
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.
