Yavapai baskets are usually coiled, and the most common forms are trays, shallow bowls, and plaques. The radiating designs and figurative elements used on Yavapai baskets are similar to those used by Western Apache basket makers, and these similarities make it difficult to distinguish between Yavapai and Western Apache baskets. Sometimes, however, the designs on Yavapai baskets appear to be more precise and more symmetrical than those on Apache baskets.
