Commentary
The olla shape of this basket is not traditional among the Papago but became popular for sale to tourists THe use of human and animal figures is also untraditional, with the trdaitional motifs employed resembling those of the Pima geometric style. The use of yucca for sewing or wrapping baskets was relatively late innovation, replacing willow sapwood.
