General Notes

Description

A woven basket with a classic diagonal pattern in the belly of the basket, but with the sheafs gathered up at top into two sheafs that then cross diagonally across the top of the basket to for a handle.

Emotional Sum or Sense-of-life

Life can be dynamic and purposeful and intriguing -- because of the dynamic form and economy of materials and diagonal symmetry of the composition.
