Cylindrical basket with flat base. Coiled construction with dark brown rim. Dark brown band of lizards around side.

Bear grass, willow sapwood, and devil's claw

The use of the lizards as a design motif is not traditional. Also, bear grass is an unusual coil foundation material for Pima baskets, though common in Papago basketry.
