The Shoshone Panamint Indians live in a very hostile environment, Death Valley. Yet, their baskets have always been desired as examples of some of the finest basketry weaving in the world.
This basket is from a Transitional period for the Panamints. The foundation goes from grass to rod. Willow and joshua tree (yucca) root are the weaving materials. These characteristics help us date this basket to 1890-1910.
With 18 stitches per inch and 8 coils per inch, this Panamint basket is finely woven and in excellent condition.
