This tray with geometrical design was handwoven by the men of the Ye’kwana people (Venezuelan Amazon) in tirite fiber. Basketry has always been considered a functional art, and this is true for all cultures. Although it was never strictly decorative, it is considered and exhibited as such nowadays. Its origin is eminently utilitarian because the processing, transportation, and consumption of foodstuffs was the determinant factor for the development of this tradition.

The weaving techniques and motifs used by the different groups or ethnicities are appreciated today as a brand for cultural identity. Venezuela, being in the tropical zone, is endowed with an amazing variety of plants, palm trees, bamboo, straws and lianas, used by the indigenous communities to make trays, fans, sifters, strainers, wringers, mats, crowns, weapons, fishing gear, cages, musical instruments, ornaments and as ritual objects.

 

THIS ITEM IS ELIGIBLE FOR RETURN WITHIN 30 DAYS OF RECEIPT IF UNUSED AND IN ITS ORIGINAL CONDITION.
