This a rare offering from the New Basket Workshop in Johannesburg. To my knowledge, there is no one in the States offering any of these breathtaking, handmade basket sculptures. New condition, the piece offers a huge amount of visual presence, at 17" tall and 30" in circumference. It can be displayed on the floor, mantle, or pedestal on its side, or with the help of an art support, such as any size Plexiglas stand. These sculptures were featured some years ago in a museum exhibit in Zimbabwe called Basket Case., at The National Gallery, located in Harare. The pieces were created in conjunction with The New Basket Workshop, a non-profit organization that supports the women who make these baskets in Binga and Bulawayo.
