Western Mono bottleneck basket

$ 2,400
  • Description
    The Western Mono were exceptional basket weavers. Living in the Sierra Nevada region and migrating seasonally while following game, they traded with the Foothill Yokuts. The coiled baskets of both groups are similar, utilizing similar weaving materials and weaving similar designs. However, the Mono wove in a leftward direction while the Foothill Yokuts wove to the right, and the Mono sometimes incorporated a vertical design. Mono bottleneck baskets often have concentric bands of rattlesnake design.

    This Mono bottleneck basket is very finely woven. It has 21 stitches per inch and 8 coils per inch.
