HB003 - Hopi Hand Woven Basket - Artist: Guy Stoner - Measurements: 11"W x 2 1/2"D - Hopi basketmakers are some of the finest artists in North America. While many Pueblo peoples no longer weave baskets, Hopi women continue the tradition of basketry. The background for the designs are natural colors of plant materials and the vivid colors are commercial dyes. The symbolism and tradition in Hopi basketry designs link each unique handmade basket to other parts of Hopi life, past and present. Basketry designs reflect aspects of Hopi religion and agriculture. As the basket's fibers are woven together, so are all the pieces of Hopi culture.
