Handwoven Hopi Coil Basket
Hopi handwoven coil basket by an 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. The design depicts a Shalako Mana kachina.
