Product Information

B1270 - Hopi Coil Basket
This is a handwoven Hopi coil basket by unknown weaver. It takes hard work and dedication to weave a plaque. When picking the materials it is proper to give a food offering in Hopi tradition and pick enough to leave some for others. While picking, weavers think about the blessings they received. If a plaque doesn't want to be flat, it wants to be a basket, vice versa, from basket to plaque. Each plaque and basket is important representing the Hopi life and plant life. For instance, this Hopi coil basket has a Talavi Katsina (Early Morning Singer kachina) which he stands at the top of the kiva during the Night dance ceremonies and he sings to to the entire village and it measures 19 in diameter. One of kind Hopi coil basket.
