Mid-20th Century Shaman Basket with Hand Spun Netting, From the Tamang of Nepal

About

Mid-20th century Shaman Basket with Hand Spun Netting and strap. From the Tamang of north central Nepal. This rustic sturdy basket was used to hold and transport the articles and paraphernalia used by a shaman in his or, possibly, her practice. The shaman acts as a healer in the community, to divert or oppose malevolent forces bringing illness or trouble to an individual or household, and to that end must travel to the house of the patient where the séance is held, and carrying with him the articles of his trade. Condition: The basket has a few minor damaged areas, where the bamboo has become frayed, or a strip is missing. It is structurally sound and in good condition, with a lovely patina. Dimensions: 17 inches wide by 11 inches deep by 14 inches tall.
