Yavapai Apache Figured Basket Tray
Yavapai Apache tray woven of willow and devil's claw. These artistically beautiful Apache trays were made for sale or trade at the Trading Posts and along the stops of the Santa Fe railroad. The design of this basket features an outlined 3-point star with negative men and coyote tracks within banded geometrics. Made using a knife, an awl, and the weaver's skill. There are few Apache basket makers today.
