Description: 
The broad ashwood splints of this storage basket provide a large surface area for stamped painted decoration. The large geometric motifs which appear as pointed stars on the end of the basket and as nested arches on each side of the basket are sometimes referred to as medallions and might symbolize the four cardinal directions. Leaf motifs appear with the arched medallions and in a more stylized format along a vine at the corners.
