Filipino Field Basket


Humble in origin, this intricately woven basket, likely used to collect grain, exhibits remarkable workmanship. To form the basket, artisans used different sized reeds and two distinct weaving patterns. Thicker fibers form the rim, which is accented with an intricate handle on one side. A striking storage vessel, the basket also makes a stunning wall hanging, casting patterned shadows on the wall.
