Description
 
Small Papago (Tohono O'odham) bowl featuring simple design, in excellent condition. This basket was kept from sunlight, which helped protect its beautiful colors from fading. Size 4 1/2" by 5", with lid.

The Papago (Tohono O'odham or Desert People) reside in the Sonoran Desert of Arizona and Mexico. The early Papago Indian Baskets were primarily utilitarian and used to carry water, firewood, prepare food and for storage. Tohono O'odham Indian baskets are handmade using Native Plants such as Yucca, Beargrass and Devils Claw. These Native American weavers rely on the natural colors of the desert plants, making them quite beautiful.
