Dene Basket – Purple Flower by Rose Nande


This lovely basket is crafted in Fort Laird, Northwest Territories by Dene artist Rose Nande. A purple flower is quilled on the top and side. Traditional baskets from the region were used for storing food and supplies. It is durable enough to use, but can also be displayed as an original work of art. Crafted of birchbark, willow strips, spruce root strips, moose hide ties and porcupine quills, this measures 5″/13 cm in diameter and 4.5″/11 cm in height.
