Great Gift for the Holidays

Bid on an this 2010 Authentic Native American Basket.  This basket has been handcrafted by Penobscot Master Basketmaker and Tribal Member Pam Cunningham in the tradition of the Penobscot Indians of Maine.  It is a one-of -a-kind and has been marked on the cover by the artist for authencity.  The basket is made of various widths of ash, with ash accents of blue and violet as well as accents of sweetgrass.  The basket has an approximate diameter of 8" and is approximately 5" tall.  An item of this skill level is very unique and a highly sought after collector's item.  You can find the artist's work displayed at the Hudson Museum in the University of Maine-Orono and at the Abbey Museum in Bar Harbor, Maine.  100% of the proceeds from the sale of this item will benefit the youth of the Penobscot Nation Boys & Girls Club.
