Grass and wood
x 11 13/16 in. ( x 30 cm)
cattail, willow sapwood and devil's claw
Although basically undtraditional, this example employs the traditional black center from which radiate panels filled with anthropomorphic and zoomorphic motifs. The construction of the basket is looser than in the previous emaple.: there area only five coils per 2.5 cm., and the wrapping stitches on one side of the basket are frequently split. In the previous basket, which is more finely sewn, there are seven coils per 2.5cm., and the stitches are rearley split.
