SOLD Antique Hopi Hanging Basket
SOLD Rare antique handwoven Hopi hanging basket plaque with Kachina mask
13" W x 1" H
Faded on one side where it sat in the sun for many years,
this now hangs with the vibrant side facing out.
Subtle but striking
slashes of blue, orange, and black dance on a background of locally
gathered warp materials.
Made by the Hopi people, who have lived atop
the sacred mesas of the American Southwest for generations, this basket
shows icons from their sacred religion.
