This nicely woven Man in the maze basket measure 11 3/4" by 1 1/8" depth. It is in very good condition.

According to O'odham history, the labyrinth design depicts experiences and choices we make in our journey through life. In the middle of the "maze", a person finds their dreams and goals. When one reaches the center, we have one final opportunity (the last turn in the design) to look back upon our choices and path, before the Sun God greets us, blesses us and passes us into the next world.

Members of the Tohono O'odham tribal nation (formerly known as Papago Indians), live along the Arizona, Mexico border. The Tohono O'odham people are world-famous for their intricately woven baskets. Basket making is a long-honored tradition of the Tohono O'odham people who make baskets from various materials such as willow, yucca and the black devils claw and horsehair.
