Mossi Square-bottom Round-top decorated straw basket
This is one of many very characteristic baskets the Mossi people of Burkina Faso make and use commonly. The square bottom and round top are typical of this long-standing tribal tradition. This type has vertical sides and minimalist designs around them. This same style of basket comes in a variety of sizes and side designs. This one is among the smaller of the genre.
5 7/8" deep x 8 1/4" diameter at the top.
