Large Canadian Salish Basket with Butterfly Design
This is a very large rectangular partially imbricated basket with a design of large polychrome butterflies. It has two rows with two large butterflies on the sides and two rows with one butterfly each on the ends. The butterflies are either black with red and white interiors or red with black and white interiors. The basket has no breaks nor loss on the rim nor stains, although there is minor loss to a few of the pieces of imbrication from wear.
