Borneo, Kalimantan Indonesia / Sarawak, Malaysia
8 inches h. by 10 inches w. by 8.5 inches deep.
Finely woven basket with long woven straps. Has a separate wall liner protecting the inside. Lightly patterned with red black and green pigments in a diagonal band and a coil of tightly wrapped bamboo circling the body. The top lid is decorated with the same diagonal pattern and coiling for support but has areas where the straps pass through several times. The intricate straps and the lining inside suggest this was an important basket for ritual use.
