Description

This bowl is carved with particularly elegant bands of wave patterns, which encircle it just beneath the rim and frame rectangular panels on both ends. The panels and the curved base are each carved with a face characterized by a broad, crescent-shaped brow and deeply underscored eyes. The simple, circular faces resemble those found in the patterns of Wasco/Wishram baskets.
