Description

Believed to be Pima Popoga Indian, this weaved basket features specific design. Believed to be a Winnowing-Parching Tray.
Seeds were rubbed and loosened from their husks in slightly concave trays then tossed into the air so the wind might help separate the lighter husks from the seed kernel. The clean seeds were then parched by tossing and moving hot coals among the seeds, all within the tray.

This Pima Bowl Basket is a vibrant example of Native American art. It is in excellent condition. It is made with a traditional Pima Indian design, colored with natural dyes, it is a true gift of the Earth. The lively, natural color scheme of this Bowl Basket makes it the perfect piece for any Southwestern decor. Coiled baskets are made like coiled pottery. The Pima Indians, Akimel O’odham, are known for their fine Indian baskets. Thin strips of materials; Devils Claw, willow and Bear grass are wrapped into a bundle which is coiled around in a continuous spiral. The symbol of the Salt River Pima Indian is the Man in the Maze.
