Natalie Linn In­dian Bas­kets

Native American Art - - NATIVE BASKETRY -

This finely wo­ven glob­u­lar bas­ket, from circa 1924, was made by master weaver Lucy Telles (1885-1955) from the Yosemite Mono Lake/paiute area. The bas­ket baskground is made of sedge root and the fig­u­ral de­signs are wo­ven with bracken fern root and red­bud. A frieze of al­ter­nat­ing de­signs in­clude but­ter­flies, flow­ers and hum­ming­birds. Tri­an­gles with ser­rated edges sep­a­rate the zoomor­phic ac­tive pat­tern. A but­ter­fly on the lid keeps the pat­tern con­tained and gives em­pha­sis to the en­closed com­po­si­tion. This work is truly con­sid­ered a piece of highly artis­tic bas­ketry sculp­ture.
