Juncus and grass (plant material)
x 10 5/8 in. ( x 27 cm)
juncus, deer grass and Desert Quail topknots
The Cahuillas' usage of quail feathers was probably inspired by the basketry of the Yokuts who often used quail topknots as a fringe on their gift baskets. Traditionally, feathers were not used in Cahuilla baskets.
