About this artwork
Given to a bride at her betrothal, twined dowry baskets are some of the largest and most complex objects woven by Pomo artists. The basic pattern of this basket includes different sizes of serrated design motifs that are animated with topknot feathers from the California quail, imported glass beads, and indigenous clamshell beads.
