Vintage museum quality artisan basket titled "Corn Devas" by renowned basket weaver Joan Brink (born April 11, 1945-), crafted May 28, 2001. Measures 6" h x 12 inches in diameter. Dyed and bleached cane with purple-heart rim and base, with turquoise heishi beads. The following is a quote from Joan Brink: "Each basket I design and create is the result of a particular meditation. The abstract imagery of this small octave basket is designed to frame the figures of eight corn devas. A deva is consciousness connected to the earth which holds the pattern of harmony for a specific thing. In this case, the deva holds the pattern for the corn plant. To many indigenous people in the Southwest corn is a symbol for abundance. The relationship between mankind and the devic intelligences is a co-created one. While they hold the pattern integrity, we can manifest the plant. This basket is meant to celebrate that relationship and to symbolize the abundance accorded to those who honor this relationship. For more information on devic intelligence, see publications on Findhorn Garden in Scotland." Joan Brink, 28 May, 2001"
