Cestería - Basketry - Artes de México


Basketry. Basketry is both functional and aesthetically pleasing in its forms, colors, textures and flexibility, but this is also due to our emotional reaction to baskets and the symbolism that surrounds them. Each of these pieces appears to be woven from fragments of the artisan’s soul, to paraphrase writer Bruno Traven.
