Tohono O'Odham basket purse with bats and butterflies, 1940s
1940's Tohono O'Odham basket "purse" with bat and butterfly designs. One side has the bats and the other side has the butterflies. Both are pollinators. Made with yucca (light) and devil's claw (dark) with a Bear Grass foundation. Measures 7 1/2" in diameter, 2 1/4" deep. Great condition. A very unusual and rare piece. I must for the collection.
