Yokuts gambling tray



The Yokuts are known as master weavers. Their baskets are among the most prized of all baskets.

 

Yokuts women gambled using dice made out of walnut. Score was kept using sticks.

 

This basket is coiled out of sedge, redbud and dyed bracken fern on a deergrass foundation. With a beautifully executed whirlwind design, this basket is a work of beauty.  It is highly desirable in size, form and condition.
