Vintage museum quality artisan basket by renowned basket weaver Joan Brink (born April 11, 1945-), crafted August 1, 2000. Measures 14" h x 17.25 inches in diameter. Dyed and bleached cane with purple-heart rim and base. The following is a quote from Joan Brink: "Each basket I design and create is the result of a particular meditation. This basket was designed following a conversation about wind Kachinas or Spirits. The subject was inspirational as a basket story, and since we were in a serious drought in New Mexico, the "Rain Spirits" were worth invoking in design, thus Rain Dance. In the basket, the vertical figures in black represent the dancers' spirits. Drops of rain fall from the white triangular clouds and above, lighting arrows complete the design." Joan Brink, 1 August 2000"
