Vintage museum quality artisan basket titled "Corn Circle" by renowned basket weaver Joan Brink (born April 11, 1945-), crafted July 22, 2002. Measures 7.5" h x 13 inches in diameter. Dyed and bleached cane with ebonized tropical walnut rim, rim base and lid, 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. This basket marks the first in a series of smaller, highly decorative pieces with lids. I am calling them "Treasure Baskets". The basket design centers around the symbols of corn and crows: corn being the symbol of abundance in the Southwest and crows siginfiying magic. I have used my checkerboard symbol for water as decorative panels to set off the four plain panels of negative space in which I've placed the pairs of corn. Over each corn pair is centered a crow in a upper band of white. The four corn pairs and the four crows mark the four cardinal directions and suggest the dynamics of a medicine wheel. 7/22/2002 Joan Brink"
