The tightly woven top of this exemplary basket gently deconstructs into the open weave of the bottom. It was likely used to protect fresh produce during the Qing Dynasty. The artisan who created it spent many hours cutting, splitting and scraping the bamboo—then weaving and dyeing it to achieve a light and open artful pattern which happens to cast delicate, lace-like shadows.
