Handmade Swirling Wheat Stitch Tohono O'odham Plate Basket by Lisa Sanchez
This Tohono O'odham basket is a timeless treasure of Southwestern creativity. This handmade Papago basket showcases the artistry and symmetry of Lisa Sanchez, a talented & contemporary American Indian basket weaver. Hand coiled and hand woven, in a traditional wheat stitch design, this basket takes your eye from the tightly coiled center outward to the lacy swirls of Yucca stitches that dance thru the basket. These hand woven, wheat or split stitches hold the BearGrass bundles together in a traditional showing of skill & artistry. As you move outward, the swirling pattern takes you to the fully coiled rim to complete this lovely Native Craft. This Papago handmade basket measures about 8-1/4" wide.This one-of-a-kind basket would be a wonderful & affordable start to your Native American collections.
