The basket is of hazel, twined with beargrass to form the light background, and with maidenhair fern to form the pattern of interlocked arrows in black /dark purple. This pattern is only visible to the exterior however, this being achieved with a complicated half twist overlaying technique used by the peoples of this region. This basket is of traditional form and was made by and for use by the Hupa people. It was not made for sale.

Although not in perfect condition it is still the most beautiful I have encountered. The accuracy of construction, fineness of weave and general power and impact of the pattern clearly identify this example as a museum quality piece. This basket has been in the collection of the British sculptor Henry H. Clyne since the early 1960's.
