This is a Sweeping Man basket, according to legends "The Creator" is the one who brought the art to life for the Pepople of the Tohono O' Odham tribe.

Here they still gather the materials for their baskets as their ancestors did. This authentic piece of Native American art consists of two parts: the warp (inner coil) is made of bear grass, the weft (design) is harvested either from the soap tree yucca, the pod of the devil's claw (black), or the roots of the banana yucca (red). all the colors occur naturally, and no dyes are used. One of a kind Tohono O' Odham basket, and measurements are 9" T x 7 1/2" W.
